The Greenpeace Organizing Term is an action-filled semester and the best hands-on training for students to become environmental leaders. You’ll be making an investment in your leadership skills and training in grassroots organizing, media, direct action, and campaign strategy. You’ll travel abroad with Greenpeace and join a team of incredible activists working to protect the planet. Many students are also able to receive class credit for the semester.
“I now understand what it means to be an organizer. I can now use all the amazing things I’ve learned to actually make a difference.” - Charis, University of North Carolina-Asheville, GOT Fall ‘04
We give you hands-on experience with a real Greenpeace campaign. We have the best trainers come here to our DC headquarters or our new San Francisco office to provide all the skills you’ll need to hit the ground and work with a real Greenpeace campaign to implement what you’ve learned. You’ll put your organizing skills into action, play a critical role in organizing on-the-ground Greenpeace events, and make a real impact fighting to protect America’s last remaining forests, promoting clean energy and saving our world’s oceans. You’ll learn how to climb, drive Greenpeace boats, use advanced communication equipment and practice peaceful direct action.
We travel abroad for a week to meet with international Greenpeace activists. During past trips, students have traveled to Greenpeace headquarters in Amsterdam, to Paris to take part in a 500-person peace symbol, and to Germany where they joined a 6,000-person march in to protest of nuclear waste shipments. We give people a few days to just relax and explore Europe as well.
We provide more than 50 cutting-edge training sessions in grassroots organizing, campaign skills, media strategy, and direct action. America’s top environmental leaders will train you in everything from recruiting volunteers and developing leaders to creating a campaign plan.
If you are passionate, bold, smart, visionary, strategic, savvy and ready to stand up for the environment, join us! We are currently accepting applications for the Spring 2007 semester in Washington DC and San Francisco. To learn more and to apply, visit www.greenpeace.org/got
