Opportunities for Students


Our Climate mobilizes students and young people to advocate for fair and effective carbon pricing policy through the Put a Price on It campaign. There are three concrete ways for students to plug into the campaign. Join us!

1. Apply to be a Fellow. Our Climate's Fellowship Program is a structured program in which participants lead a campaign for carbon pricing in key states around the country. Fellows give 5-10 hours/week, in which they gain experience coordinating student carbon pricing initiatives, rally public support state carbon pricing policy, and directly engage with lawmakers through lobbying actions. Fellows receive support from Our Climate staff as they work to achieve the goals of the campaign. Read more and apply for the Spring Fellowship here!

2. Become a field representative. Similarly to the Action Team, becoming a Field Rep allows you to join a network of carbon pricing champions across the country organizing on their campuses and in their community -- but it's slightly more of a commitment. We form a relationship to figure out the best and most effective way for you to get involved. Maybe that's lobbying, organizing, art, education, research etc. This is good for people who want to be a leader, but also need to be flexible because they are already really involved with other things. Most students give 2-3 hours a week, but maybe one week you have finals and can't give any and the next you want to do 5+? Totally fine. If you are interested in becoming a Field Rep, please email Tom at tom@ourclimate.us. Let's #PutAPriceOnIt!

3. Join our action team on Facebook. Join a network of determined volunteers from across the country who are working to #PutAPriceOnIt. You'll be added to our listserv for occasional updates, included in our Facebook group, and you'll have the opportunity to work on the most important climate fight of our time. Request to join here.
