An invitation from Greenpeace USA

The Organizing Term is a semester-long training program for students who want to learn the skills necessary to become one of the country's leading environmental activists. Students in the program will receive trainings from the nation's best and most experienced campaigners and acquire hands-on experience working on a Greenpeace campaign. Students will also travel to Europe for a weeklong training with leading international environmental organizers and share skills with students working on similar issues around the world. In most cases students are able to receive credit at their school for participating in the program.

We are currently accepting applications for the summer and fall sessions.
The Summer Session is: May 31st - August 5th
The Fall Session is: August 29th - December 16th

Greenpeace knows that students have played an integral role in every major social movement in recent history and that we cannot win the fight for a green and peaceful world without working with and training the next generation of environmental leaders. We are looking for the best college students, primarily freshmen or sophomores, who are passionate, bold, smart, visionary, strategic, savvy, and ready to stand up and join us in the trenches.

You can learn more about this program or apply visit:

Better yet, give Marie a call at (202) 319-2413 or e-mail her at
The deadline to apply is March 25th.

For a green and peaceful earth,
John Passacantando
Executive Director
Greenpeace USA
