Greenpeace Organizing Team ’07 – Applications Open

I was notified about this by the folks at Greenpeace through their MySpace profile, and it sounds rather interesting:

Greenpeace is accepting applications for the Spring 2007 semester of the Greenpeace Organizing Team, which they describe as a semester of “ACTION, TRAINING, & TRAVEL”. From their message to me:

The Greenpeace Organizing Term is an action-filled semester and the best hands-on training for students to become environmental leaders. You’ll be making an investment in your leadership skills and training in grassroots organizing, media, direct action, and campaign strategy. You’ll travel abroad with Greenpeace and join a team of incredible activists working to protect the planet. Many students are also able to receive class credit for the semester.

This semester involves training at their offices in Washington, DC and San Francisco, CA and travel to other parts of the world to meet local activists and visit the country. Their training is in-depth, covering everything from event management, organizational skills, media strategy, campaign skills, direct action – even driving boats, using communications equipment, and climbing.

Spaces are open to students aged 18 and above, through freshmen and sophomores (first and second years) are preferred. There doesn’t seem to be a country limit, though it is largely US-based. Tuition is $3,500 and covers travel costs and expenses; limited scholarships are available.

For more information, visit the Greenpeace Organizing Team website or their MySpace Profile. You can also email them at got@wdc.greenpeace.org or contact Samantha Corbin at +1 202-319-2468.

Thanks guys!
