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 political 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, President of Planned Parenthood, Justin Ruben, President of MoveOn, and Bill McKibben of 350.org. You’ll even get paid: Change Corps organizers earn $25,000 and receive paid sick days, holidays, and vacation days, and qualifying staff have the opportunity to enroll in our group health care plan and student loan repayment program.

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.

We’ll invite 20 of the best and brightest candidates out of thousands of applicants to join the Change Corps class of 2016. We’re looking for people who are fired up about politics and 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 get more information about joining the 2015-2016 class of Change Corps’ Training Academy for Activists. Change Corps is a yearlong program that begins in August 2015 with introductory classroom training, and continues with field placements in multiple locations across the country. Candidates must be willing to relocate.
