Our Climate mobilizes students and young people to advocate for fair and effective climate policies. There are four concrete ways for students to plug into state campaigns. Join us!
1. Apply to be a Fellow. Our Climate's Fellowship is a structured program in which participants organize their peers, engage the media, collaborate with partner organizations and coalition members, and meet with elected officials to advance science-based and equitable climate policies in key states around the country. Fellows commit 5-10 hours/week, and will coordinate with a cohort of Fellows to achieve campaign goals. Fellows receive one-on-one support from Our Climate staff. This position will be based in one of our six states and reports to a State Organizer.
Our Climate is currently accepting applications for the 2020 - 2021 school year. Learn more about the program and apply here.
2. Apply to be a Field Representative. Field Representatives spend 3-5 hours a week working to win equitable and science-based climate policy. This educational and supportive arrangement is designed to build the strong and diverse coalition of leaders needed to pass fair and effective climate policy. Field Reps will gain experience coordinating student climate pricing initiatives, rally public support for climate policy, and directly engage with lawmakers. Click here to learn more.
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.
4. Become a Field Advisor. Field advisors are former fellows who support our fellowship and field representative programs, our coalition-building, and our campaigns. Hours and duties are dependent on state. To learn more about becoming a Field Advisor, find your state organizer here.
