Opportunities for Students

Our Climate mobilizes students and young people to advocate for fair and effective climate policies.

There are four concrete ways for students to plug into state campaigns. Join us!

Our Climate’s Fellowship is a structured program in which participants 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 in key states around the country. Fellows commit 5-10 hours/week, and will coordinate with a cohort of Fellows to achieve campaign goals. Fellows receive one-on-one support from Our Climate staff.

Our Climate’s Fellowship Program is now accepting applications from all states. If you are not in one of our target states (MA, WA, FL, OR, NY) you will be applying for our National Fellowship Program which will focus on passing federal climate policy.

All Fellowship programs start September 15, 2021 and end May 15, 2022. Application deadline is August 1st, with interviews beginning in mid-August. Fellows will receive a $500 reimbursement for educational/professional development trainings.

Field Representatives spend 3-5 hours a week working to win equitable and science-based climate policy. This educational and supportive arrangement is designed to build the strong and diverse coalition of leaders needed to pass fair and effective climate policy. Field Reps will gain experience coordinating student climate pricing initiatives, rally public support for climate policy, and directly engage with lawmakers. Email our National Policy and Programs Manager Emily Martin at emily@ourclimate.us to learn more.
Field advisors are former fellows who support our fellowship and field representative programs, our coalition-building, and our campaigns. Hours and duties are dependent on state. To learn more about becoming a Field Advisor, find your state organizer here.
