Field Representative

Join the Our Climate Team

Our Climate’s Field Representative Program is a structured, advanced volunteering opportunity in which participants are continually empowered to organize their peers, engage the media, collaborate with partner organizations and coalition members, and meet with elected officials to advance science-based and equitable climate policies. Field Representatives follow a similar pathway through our programs to Fellows but with a smaller, more flexible time commitment and a more fluid, self-selected system of training and ongoing support. Time commitment: 2-5 hours per week (1 for team call, 1 for coworking/office hours, 0-3 for independent projects).
Please apply by emailing your respective State Organizer below. With the subject as Field Representative and the state you’re applying for. Include your name, location, and why you’re interested in becoming a field rep.
