|Program Overview (from the program website):
Each year, Environment America hires passionate, talented and committed college graduates to join our two-year Fellowship Program. Over the last decade, fellows have worked side-by-side with our most experienced advocates and organizers to make a real difference for the environment.
If you’re hired, you’ll learn to plan and run strategic state and national campaigns. You’ll learn how to identify effective solutions to critical environmental problems and organize public support for your campaigns. You’ll organize town hall meetings and rallies; get your message out by writing opinion pieces and getting them printed in major newspapers and on key websites; set up and speak at news conferences; lobby lawmakers; and run citizen outreach campaigns to educate the public, build membership and raise money for our work. You’ll recruit interns, activists, and staff to work alongside you. Bottom line: You’ll make a real difference.
You’ll learn by participating in classroom-style trainings throughout the year. You’ll get guidance and feedback from your staff director, and work alongside some of the nation’s top environmental advocates and organizers. Past fellows will tell you, though, that you will learn the most through hands-on experience.
After just two years of hard work, you’ll have the skills and experience to take on even more leadership here at Environment America – running your own program, or leading the charge in a new state or on a new issue – or elsewhere in the environmental community.
