BFP 2017 Climate Organizing Summer Program Application

Better Future Project is proud to announce the second year of our Climate Organizing Summer Program!

Spend your summer from May 28th - July 28th learning about organizing and working on climate action in the greater Boston area! The summer program will bring together a cohort of 10-14 students to spend 9 weeks learning about the climate movement, getting experience in community organizing, and receiving training on campaign organizing. Participants will also get the chance to work directly with 350 Mass for a Better Future community activists on hard-hitting climate campaigns. Through this program, we aim to invest in youth leadership development, to broaden the climate movement, and to convene students to support each other as they continue working on campaigns at their campuses beyond the summer.
