The MobilizeGreen Virtual YCC program is a four-week intensive program where students work and learn together with other crew members from across the country.

Led by experienced crew leaders, crew members participate in interactive workshops, learn from experts and professionals in the conservation field and explore topics of interest as they complete conservation-related projects with their peers. The virtual crew member experience is unique and can create memories and friendships that last a lifetime. MobilizeGreen is a nonprofit organization focused on jumpstarting green careers for diverse students, through internships, mentoring, and youth engagement.  At MobilizeGreen, we are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Consistent with this mission, we believe people are inherently capable but often lack opportunity. We are working hard to increase the diversity in conservation spaces and strongly encourage qualified BIPOC and LGBTQ+ candidates to apply.

Participants receive a weekly stipend of $150 for 15-20 hours of work per week.
