Green America ( is a nonprofit, membership organization whose mission is to harness economic power – the strength of consumers, investors, businesses, and the marketplace – to create a socially just and environmentally sustainable society. Our Climate Action Program has produced several groundbreaking reports on solar power; combated the dirtiest forms of energy, which helped stop the construction of 15 coal-fired power plants in the US; and engaged hundreds of thousands of people in actions to promote corporate responsibility and government action on climate change.

We are seeking a climate fellow with outreach and organizing skills, excellent writing skills, social media experience, and an interest in climate change issues.

  • Be familiar with social networking platforms and draft content for Facebook and Twitter
  • Assist with research and mobilization on clean energy and other energy-related projects as needed;
