Every summer, Better Future Project (BFP) assembles a group of dedicated students to work as climate organizing fellows on grassroots campaigns. In early June, BFP provides fellows with immersive training in community organizing, campaign and movement strategy, facilitation, and more. The fellows then spend eight weeks collaborating on a community-oriented campaign, while receiving ongoing coaching and training. The campaigns vary from year to year, and this year fellows are excited to work on a divestment campaign that asks the iconic New England Aquarium to pull its investments from fossil fuels. When the fellows return to their campuses this fall, they will be primed with meaningful connections, enhanced skills, and renewed passion for the climate movement!
You can invest in the next generation of climate leaders by contributing to the Climate Organizing Summer Program! All contributions help offset program costs, including scholarships that make it possible for many students to choose this opportunity over conventional summer jobs.
