About Our Climate
Our Climate aims to mobilize young adults to pass bold, equitable, science-based pollution-pricing policies on a state level to combat climate change. We believe the generations most impacted by climate change need to be at the table when policies that impact our futures are being written and negotiated.
About the Oregon Fellowship
The purpose of the Oregon Fellowship is to have the fellow plan, organize, and facilitate a summit to support and train young leaders to become climate justice advocates. The summit would happen sometime in late October with the aim of having around 50 young adults ages 18-24 in attendance. The summit would be a day-long event with a series of workshops led by partner organizations with some kind of creative element. The fellow would be expected to plan the schedule, conduct outreach, and manage the budget for the event with support from our Northwest Field Coordinator.
Qualifications: College and work experience is not necessary to apply. Anyone ages 18-24 is qualified so long as they are:
- Passionate and committed to saving our collective future through the Democratic process;
- Eager to learn about and advocate for climate justice;
- Experience with event planning and outreach
- Ability to dedicate 10 hours/week to the fellowship
- Proactive and timely digital and in person communication skills are a must! (Responding to emails/texts in a timely manner, being able to connect with a variety of people from students to elected officials)
- Ability to take initiative!
Once you complete the application, our NW Field Coordinator will follow up with you to schedule an interview. There will be two rounds of interviews and a brief work sample.
