Environment America Fellowships

Each year, Environment America hires passionate, talented and committed college graduates to join its two-year Fellowship Program. Over the last decade, fellows have worked side-by-side with Environment America’s most experienced advocates and organizers to make a real difference for the environment.

Fellows learn to plan and run strategic state and national campaigns. They also learn how to identify effective solutions to critical environmental problems and organize public support for campaigns. They organize town hall meetings and rallies; get your message out by writing opinion pieces and getting them printed in major newspapers and on key websites; set up and speak at news conferences; lobby lawmakers; and run citizen outreach campaigns to educate the public, build membership and raise money for Environment America’s work. Fellows recruit interns, activists, and staff to work alongside you. Bottom line: You’ll make a real difference.

All fellows learn by participating in classroom-style trainings throughout the year. They receive guidance and feedback from a staff director, and work alongside some of the nation’s top environmental advocates and organizers. Past fellows will tell you, though, that you will learn the most through hands-on experience. 

Compensation & Benefits: The target annual compensation for this position is $25,500 in the first year. Staff in their second year receive a raise which averages $1500. Environment America offers a competitive benefits package, an excellent training program and opportunities for advancement.

Locations: Washington, DC, Boston, Denver, Philadelphia, Raleigh and Portland, OR.

Applications are accepted year-round.
