Dear Student,
I am writing to personally invite you to apply for the Greenpeace Organizing Term, a semester of ACTION, TRAINING, and TRAVEL.

The Greenpeace Organizing Term (GOT) is an action-filled semester and the best hands-on training for you to become an environmental leader. You'll be making an investment in your leadership skills and get trained in grassroots organizing, media, direct action, and campaign strategy. You'll travel abroad with Greenpeace and join a team of incredible activists working to protect the planet.

Greenpeace knows that students have played an integral role in every major social movement in recent history and that we cannot win the fight for a green and peaceful world without working with and training the next generation of environmental leaders. We are looking for the best college students – primarily freshmen or sophomores – who are passionate, bold, smart, visionary, strategic, savvy, and ready to stand up and join us in the trenches.
