BE A PARTICIPANT
Here's how you can attend our immersion
BE A PARTNER
As a Professional Development partner:
Opportunity for organizations (nonprofits, companies, startups, international organizations, etc.) that are willing to receive YCL Fellows (ideally two or more) to work for up to 3 months on a climate change related project. In 2019, this should happen between September-December. Host organizations are expected to co-finance costs associated with Field Placements. Excluding optional remuneration for participants, a three-month placement, which includes travel to and from the site and basic living expenses, is estimated to cost USD $6,000. Costs may vary depending upon location. Co-financing agreements may involve partners covering in-country costs (food expenses and accommodation), while participants cover health insurance, evacuation services, and round-trip travel.
Do you want to hire a passionate, skilled and innovative employee for a project or job related to climate change? Forward your vacancy announcement to us and we will send a tailored list with recommended candidates from our network of YCL participants and alumni!
BE A DONOR
In order to improve our programs and initiatives, we need to make investments in human resources, communications and curriculum development. We are thus looking for funding to cover those administrative costs, thereby reducing the final fee for participants.
