The Green Pathways Fellowship Program creates a pathway to the green sector for low-income young adults in living wage entry-level positions in the environmental justice movement.
This new program is a partnership between Rainier Valley Corps and Got Green and cultivate leaders through a racial equity and intersectional lens and place them at a host environmental justice-focused organization, providing them with technical skill building and training in leadership development that is culturally relevant, community-center, and context driven.
Green Pathways Fellows will be hired and placed, in partnership, with host sites for two-year fellowships. Along with leadership coaching and development, our fellows will be paid a living wage, with benefits!

This program came about because communities of color, low-income communities, and indigenous communities face greater risks 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 or are 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.
