Volunteer: The Greenpeace Semester

Taking a semester off or looking for an invaluable opportunity for the summer? Greenpeace USA is now accepting applications for The Greenpeace Semester volunteer program!

Who: Greenpeace USA

What: The Greenpeace Semester program is an intensive organizing training for students. It is action-filled and the best hands-on training available for college students to become environmental leaders. The program combines classroom-style workshops with hands-on field training and travel. Participants will learn the latest on critical environmental issues, grassroots organizing skills, how to plan effective campaigns, and the tradition of non-violence in Greenpeace history. Students will travel with Greenpeace and join a team of incredible activists currently working to protect the planet. 

When: The Greenpeace Semester program runs each spring, summer and fall. Our spring and fall semesters run for 12 weeks, and the summer sessions are five weeks long. Internship and course credit is available.

Where: The program is held in Washington, DC. However, during the fall and spring semesters, students will travel on the Greenpeace Expedition, a 10-day trip to view environmental destruction firsthand and take action to stop it. 

Extra: Greenpeace USA is looking for-

·      Passionate, smart and visionary students committed to protecting the environment. 
·      Applicants must be 18-24 years old and a current undergraduate student or high school senior. No prior campaigning experience is necessary. 
·      Rising freshmen and sophomores preferred. 
·      Greenpeace encourages all interested persons to apply, regardless of gender, race, religion, or national origin.
