We’re closed for applications for our Fellowship right now. They will open again February 2021.
The Green Pathways Fellowship Program creates a pathway for future leaders of color in the green sector, while providing living wage, entry-level positions with benefits in the environmental justice movement.
This new program is a partnership between RVC and Got Green that cultivates green leaders through racial equity and intersectional lens. The program will place Fellows at host environmental justice-focused organizations for two years, providing them with technical skill building and training in leadership development that is culturally relevant, community-centered, and context-driven.
Applicants can learn more about the program here.

This program came about because communities of color, low-income communities, and indigenous communities face greater risks from environmental challenges, which aggravate health and economic disparities. These communities can be more exposed to hazards like fire, flood, drought, or extreme heat because of where they live or work. Yet these communities are often left out and last to be included in the transition to a healthy, resilient, and sustainable future.
We need more leaders of color in the environmental movement at all levels of this field.
