Green For All Fellows

The Green For All Fellowship and Academy Program aims to expand, educate and engage a base of support for climate solutions and a clean-energy economy in America by identifying and cultivating local leaders from communities of color and low-income communities across the nation.  Green For All partners with Fellows to develop and apply their skills and resources to build innovative, community-generated solutions and organize for change in their cities. Green For All Fellows are on-the-ground leaders in the movement to create an inclusive green economy strong enough to lift people out of poverty.

Over 130 Green For All Fellows are pioneering new and effective strategies for engaging low-income communities of color in building healthy communities and climate solutions. They work in more than 74 cities in 28 states (plus the District of Columbia). Once Fellow Candidates complete the Green For All Academy (including an intensive training and nine-month term of service in their own communities), they join an active network of Green For All Fellows.
