The Greenpeace Semester is a great opportunity to receive hands-on training that will give you the skills you need to become an environmental leader.


Many students feel they just don't have the skills to rally hundreds of their peers, have a big impact on corporations, or feel they're able to pressure our elected officials.  During the Greenpeace Semester, you will learn about current environmental issues and solutions.  You’ll also be trained by experts in grassroots organizing, leadership, media, and campaign strategy.

Many students receive course credit for the semester through their university, and program staff will work with you to obtain credit.  

Applications are currently open for our summer semesters,
 and our early deadline is approaching on February 7th!  Historically, two-thirds of Greenpeace Semester students have been early applicants.  Don’t wait, apply for the Greenpeace Semester today!  

To apply for one of our upcoming terms, click here!  For more information on dates and locations, check out the Greenpeace Semester website.

Contact us if you have any questions at usa-semester@greenpeace.org.
