Become an Environment California fellow

If you're looking for the opportunity to organize, advocate and fight for California’s environment, apply to be an Environment California fellow today. We’re hiring a Field Associate to start in Sacramento immediately.

Build and mobilize support to protect California’s environment

Environment California’s field associate will build the public and political support we need to protect California’s environment. We face powerful opposition, and to overcome that opposition we need media attention, the support of broad-based coalitions, an informed public and grassroots action to win the day for our environment. Our field associate will organize news events, bring community leaders and other constituencies together around our issues and organize grassroots actions to show support for our campaigns, including:

  • Build a Million Solar Roofs: By building solar on homes, schools, farms and businesses across the state, California can lead the way toward a clean energy future. We’re working to show a massive display of public support for solar, including Governor Jerry Brown’s plan to build enough solar power to cover more than a million rooftops by 2020.
  • Keep Plastic Out of the Pacific: In just one year, our movement to stop plastic pollution has grown by leaps and bounds, from San Diego to Marin, with single-use plastic bags now banned in more than 50 communities. We’ve working toward a statewide ban.
  • Protect Yosemite from Toxic Mining: There are over 185 active mining claims within 10 miles of Yosemite National Park. We can’t let mining companies set up industrial mines that would threaten Yosemite. We’re urging the Obama Administration to protect the land around Yosemite from toxic mining.

Environment California

Environment California works to advance the environmental vision and values we share. Drawing on a strong track record of success, and the support of thousands of citizen members, we organize the support it takes to stand up to polluting industries and ultimately sweep past them.

The results of our work including a the adoption of the Million Solar Roofs initiative – to date the nation’s largest solar program – in 2006, bans on single-use plastic bags in 45 communities across California, and keeping 220 state parks from closing.

But let’s not kid ourselves: There’s so much more to do. Our environment faces multiple challenges and opportunities, nowhere more so than in California. And we have the opportunity to lead the way for nation.

Environment California’s Fellowship Program

Fighting for the environment is the challenge of a lifetime. Yet so many recent college graduates aren’t sure where to start.

Each year, we hire a recent college graduate who - like you - has the passion, the commitment and the talent it takes to stand up to polluting industries, organize support and fight for our environmental values.

Our Fellowship Program is a two-year immersion in the nuts and bolts of environmental activism, organizing, advocacy and the type of organization-building necessary for the long haul.

Since Environment California is also part of Environment America, a national federation of state-based groups, as a fellow you’ll have the opportunity to work with, and learn from, our national staff and staff from other states; take part in national campaigns and national trainings; and travel to Washington, D.C., for a national lobby day.

Learn by doing

Working with Environment California’s Legislative Director, and other senior staff, you’ll plan and run grassroots campaigns, lobby lawmakers, publish op-eds, set up and speak at news conferences, organize town hall meetings, run citizen outreach campaigns, identify new members, raise money, recruit and manage staff and much more.

Gain the experience you need to lead

After two years, you’ll have undergone a rigorous training, gained invaluable hands-on experience, and taken on more responsibility than you thought possible. And, best of all, you’ll be ready to take on a greater leadership role with Environment California, another state affiliate, or Environment America. You might even start a new state affiliate or launch a new program.

Qualifications

We’re seeking candidates ready to commit themselves to fighting for the environment. Being a fellow is not for everybody. It’s tough, demanding and the challenges never stop. We look for smarts, leadership experience, top-notch written and verbal skills and an eagerness to learn. We value experience organizing, including building campus groups.

Placement

We’re not just hiring in California. Environment America is accepting applications for fellowship positions with our state affiliates across the country and in Washington, D.C. You can apply through Environment America or directly with one of our state affiliates. If you’re flexible, you can apply for multiple positions in multiple locations. We accept applications on a rolling basis.  Most fellowships begin in August, though a limited number are available throughout the year, like this one.

Salary and benefits

As an Environment California fellow,  you’ll earn a $33,408 annual salary. You’ll have the chance to opt into our health insurance plan via pre-tax monthly salary deferrals. You’ll also get paid holidays, vacation and sick pay. After one year of work, you’ll be eligible to join our 401(k) plan.
