Change Corps is looking for graduating seniors who are passionate about getting change unstuck on the issues we care about most. Are you in?

Change Corps is a salaried, one-year, full-immersion training program in grassroots organizing. When Change Corps organizers complete their training, they’ll know how to organize people to get change unstuck on the issues they’re passionate about and will have an opportunity to become part of a wave of new organizers who will keep pushing and prodding our country forward for years to come. Click here to find out more.

In your year with Change Corps: You’ll make a real impact on issues like women’s rights, gun violence, immigration reform, voting rights, marriage equality and money in politics. You’ll get an amazing experience in the field, working on 3-5 different campaigns throughout the year in cities across the country providing critical field support for partner groups leading the charge on these issues and many more. You’ll learn how to mobilize a community toward a common goal and build the kind of support and grassroots action that persuades decision-makers to stop obstructing change and embrace it instead. And you’ll learn from the best: Our trainers include Cecile Richards, Executive Director of Planned Parenthood, Justin Ruben, President of MoveOn, and Bill McKibben of You’ll even get paid: Change Corps organizers earn $24,500, in addition to full paid group health care coverage, paid sick days and holidays, two weeks paid vacation, and a student loan repayment program for qualifying staff.
And when you graduate from the program, you’ll be ready for what comes next: Change Corps will help connect you to progressive groups looking for full-time staff to build their organizations and help them create social change. 

In the next few months, we‘ll invite 25 candidates to join the Change Corps class of 2016. We’re looking for people who are serious about social change, people who have taken initiative on their campus or community, and people who are willing to roll up their sleeves and work for change over the long haul.   

If you think you’re one of those people, then click here to submit your application to join the 2015-2016 class of Change Corps’ Training Academy for Activists. Change Corps’ yearlong program begins in August 2015 with Introductory Classroom Training, and continues with field placements in multiple locations across the country.
