Greenpeace has an intensive program that might be of interest to anyone who is really into saving the environment, and/or being on boats:
The Greenpeace Organizing Term (GOT) is an action-packed semester of travel and training. It’s a hands-on training program designed to give you the skills to be an environmental leader.
You’ll learn about current environmental issues and solutions while being trained by experts in grassroots organizing, leadership, media, and campaign strategy. You’ll travel internationally with Greenpeace to work with activists abroad. Also, you’ll learn how to engage in peaceful direct action, climb, and drive Greenpeace boats!
On top of all of that, many students are able to receive class credit for the semester.
