Clean Energy Associate (2-Year Fellowship) – Environment America

Clean Energy Associate (2-Year Fellowship) – Environment America

If you are looking for the opportunity, training and experience to make a powerful and long-lasting impact on the policies that will shape New Mexico’s environment, apply to be the Clean Energy Associate with Environment New Hampshire.  To apply, send a resume and cover letter to: jobs@environmentamerica.org.  

You’ll work to end New Hampshire’s fossil fuel dependence.

As powerful utilities consider building a massive pipeline, called the Keystone XL across the drinking supply for thousands of Americans, and as our lawmakers remove bans on more offshore drilling, putting our coasts at risk, New Hampshire’s oil use continues to rise.

New Hampshire is one of the most oil dependent states in the country. We heat our old, leaky buildings with heating oil, and use very little public transportation. We could be heating our homes with cleaner fuels and investing in energy efficiency to cut the energy we use all together.

Luckily, Environment New Hampshire helped convince the Obama Administration to announce the strongest clean cars standards in the last 40 years. These standards will save XX gallons of oil over the next Y years. To build on that progress we are working to convince our lawmakers in Concord to pass a comprehensive plan to move New Hampshire beyond oil.

Learn more about our work to get off oil at http://www.environmentnewhampshire.org/programs/nhe/get-oil

Environment New Hampshire’s Clean Energy Associate will lead our efforts to demonstrate widespread support for shifting from dirty sources of energy to clean ones, including working with clean energy professionals, public health groups, and small business owners, generating media attention, educating and mobilizing average Granite Staters through face-to-face conversations, and weighing in with the our state legislators.  Environment New Hampshire’s Clean Energy Associate will also develop and run campaigns to protect New Hampshire’s air and shift to clean energy.

You’ll work with one of the leading environmental groups in New Hampshire

Environment New Hampshire is a statewide, citizen-based environmental advocacy group.  Our professional staff combines independent research, practical ideas and tough-minded advocacy to overcome the opposition of powerful special interests and win real results for New Hampshire’s environment. Environment New Hampshire draws on 30 years of success in tackling top environmental problems.  We have led efforts to cut New Hampshire’s global warming pollution, minimize polluted runoff from developers, improve the mileage of new cars and trucks, and much more.  Learn more about the changes we’ve made at www.environmentnewhampshire.org/results.

You’ll learn how to run winning campaigns for the environment

Environment New Hampshire is a part of the Environment America federation, a federation of 29 state-based environmental advocacy groups.  Each year, Environment America hires passionate, talented and committed recent college graduates to join a two-year Fellowship Program, a program designed to give recent college graduates like you the training you need, and put you in the right place at the right time, so you can roll up your  sleeves and make a difference right away.

You’ll work with experienced advocates and organizers to make an immediate impact

If you’re hired to be the Environment New Hampshire Clean Energy Associate, you will be a member of the 2012-2014 Fellowship Program.  As a Fellow, you’ll learn how to help plan, run and win campaigns.  You’ll learn how to research and identify effective solutions to critical problems – those facing New Hampshire’s landscape, and others – and how to build and mobilize powerful constituencies to get behind your campaign.  You’ll lobby lawmakers, publish opinion pieces in major newspapers and on key websites, set up and speak at news conferences, organize town hall meetings and rallies, and run citizen outreach campaigns to educate the public, build membership and raise money for our work.  You’ll even learn how to recruit interns, activists, and future fellows to join Environment America.

In your second year, you’ll polish your skills and take on even more responsibility.  Learn more about the Fellowship Program at www.environmentamerica.org/jobs/available-positions/fellowship-program.

In addition to getting guidance and feedback from your staff director in New Hampshire, you’ll participate in classroom-style trainings throughout the year with other Environment America staff—including some of the nation’s top environmental advocates and organizers—in addition to getting guidance and feedback from your staff director.

The Fellowship is only the beginning

You will develop relationships with lawmakers and community leaders throughout New Hampshire, earn media coverage for important issues, raise funds, build membership, recruit and manage staff and volunteers, and run grassroots campaigns to promote protect New Hampshire’s landscape.  Bottom line: you’ll make a real difference.

After just two years of hard work, you’ll have the skills and experience that will set you apart from most recent college graduates and you’ll be prepared to take on even more leadership at Environment New Hampshire, elsewhere in the Environment America federation, or in the larger environmental community.
