STATUS: ACTIVE

Description:

A year-long, mission-driven intensive program. Fellows will develop and apply key advocacy skills such as organizing their peers, rallying public support, and engaging directly with elected officials to advocate for science-based, equitable climate policy at the state level and pave the way for our ultimate goal—a truly achievable, equitable and sustainable Green New Deal. New England Fellows will work collaboratively with each other, the New England Field Coordinator, and other student leaders to design and execute projects that advance science-based, equitable climate policy at the state level. Fellows will spend 7-10 hours a week on these projects and the trainings that support them.

Requirements:

  • New England Fellows must either live or study in New England. 

  • Candidates in "ready to win states" (MA, RI, and VT) are especially encouraged to apply.  

  • Fellows will conduct their weekly work from their home or campus communities, collaborate remotely by videoconference, and will occasionally attend larger events in central locations that they help to organize (COVID-19 pandemic permitting).

Application:

  • Consists of filling out a survey and answering short essays, along with inputting personal information.
