PSA from Isabel Stern ’14:
Thinking about what to do after you graduate? Care about our lovely little planet? Don’t want to sit in a cubicle for the next 40 years?
Green Corps could be perfect for you! In Green Corps’ yearlong paid program, you’ll get intensive training in the skills you need to make a difference in the world. You’ll get hands-on experience fighting to solve urgent environmental problems — global warming, deforestation, water pollution, factory farming and many others — with groups like Sierra Club and Food & Water Watch. And when you graduate from Green Corps, we’ll help you find a career with one of the nation’s leading environmental and social change groups.
Come to Usdan 108 on Thursday 10/16 to learn more about this program, and ask any questions you can think of!
