Greenpeace Organizing Term (GOT)
Wes Alum Jean Pockrus '08 sends this info in:
The Greenpeace Organizing Term (GOT) is a semester-long program packed with trainings on grassroots organizing, campaigning, and media skills. Students get a chance to travel and work on real Greenpeace campaigns in the field. Green job growth is on the rise and the GOT provides the skills and training students need to jumpstart their green careers. The GOT has something for every environmentally-conscious student -- whether you're interested in direct action campaigns, community organizing, advocacy, environmental research and reporting, or a host of other fields. Students also participate in a Greenpeace Expedition and travel to meet international activists and take action for the planet. Previous GOT students have witnessed the destruction caused by the Canadian tar sands, campaigned for the climate in Japan, and learned about sustainable agriculture and land rights from Zapatista communities in Chiapas, Mexico.
The program takes place in Washington D.C. and San Francisco every Fall, Spring, and Summer, so check out our website and apply now! For info about applying, scholarships, and credits, see our website or feel free to contact our staff: firstname.lastname@example.org
