In the spirit of supporting students while social distancing is in effect, this summer Citizens' Climate will be offering a 15-week Climate Advocacy Training Program for anyone, any age, interested in learning and applying CCL's methods for climate action. No application or prerequisites are necessary to join and there is no cost. Throughout the summer participants are invited to:

  1. Attend CCL's (virtual) International Conference, June 13-14, 2020.
  2. Work with your local chapter and group leader to see if you can participate in a virtual lobby meeting.
  3. Participate actively in at least nine sessions of CCL's Core Volunteer Trainings and post in the program's discussion forum each week about actions, questions, or thoughts inspired by that week's training.
  4. Set up a check-in call with a regional fellow or student engagement coordinator to discuss progress and further involvement.
  5. Write and submit a letter-to-the-editor or op-ed to their preferred media outlet.

Participants who successfully complete the program by August 31 will receive CCL's Certificate of Completion, and if they are enrolled at an institution of higher learning in the fall, receive an invitation to join CCL's Campus Leaders Program to start a climate campaign or CCL chapter at their school.

To sign up for CCL's summer 2020 Climate Advocacy Training Program, please fill out this Google Form.

The deadline to enroll is June 10, 2020. For more information email Clara at clara.fang@citizensclimatelobby.org.

It isn't clear when you say "school" what ages are eligible. Is this only for college students? High school? Younger? Do they need to be 18+? What about non traditional students?
Thanks!

edit: Never mind, far down on the form you allow for middle school through PhD. Thanks
