Gain experience across the country: Green Corps sends organizers to jumpstart campaigns for groups such as Rainforest Action Network, Power Shift, and Environment America in San Francisco, Chicago, Boston and dozens of other places in between.
Make an impact on today’s environmental challenges: Green Corps organizers have built the campaigns that helped keep the Arctic safe from drilling; led to new laws to support clean, renewable energy; convinced major corporations to stop dumping in our oceans; and much, much more.
Get paid! Green Corps organizers earn a salary of $25,000. Organizers also have a chance to opt into our health care program with a pre-tax monthly salary deferral. We offer paid sick days and holidays, two weeks paid vacation and a student loan repayment program for those who qualify.

The Washington Center Internship Program (TWC) in Washington DC, is a non-profit, educational institution, founded in the mid-70’s. The TWC Program is designed to help students gain a national, professional internship, develop professional and leadership skills, interact with professionals in government and their field, develop a portfolio, and become engaged citizens. Often students make connections for career positions or graduate school. BGSU has partnered with the Washington Center Internship Program since the mid-70’s and over 300 students have gained career experience.
Participating students are required to receive a minimum of 1 credit hour from BGSU for the Washington Center experiential learning experience and internship. This requires that a BGSU faculty member in the student’s department assign course credit and a grade. This is documented on a BGSU form called an “Academic Requirement Agreement”. TWC provides comprehensive mid-term and final grade evaluations from the TWC Program Manager, the Internship site supervisor, and their course instructor. The BGSU faculty member assigns a grade or S/U.
Step One: Please refer students to Sue Young, Assistant Director BGSU Career Center, TWC Campus Liaison, 318 Math/Sciences Building. They call 419-372-2356 for an appointment to go over the application and approval process. Please let me know if I can provide additional information.
