Climate Corps is an award-winning fellowship program under SEI that provides professional development opportunities for emerging leaders through implementation of sustainability and resiliency projects with local governments, nonprofits, and for-profit businesses. In essence, Climate Corps revolves around our Fellows to help them become the best sustainability professionals they can be. Climate Corps hires Fellows who then complete their fellowship with a specific host organization. These host organizations receive the support of these qualified, passionate, dedicated Fellows in achieving their sustainability-related goals for which the Fellows were hired. Exact details of the work depend on the host organization (for which the Fellow applies and interviews), however, all Fellows will gain real-world expertise in sustainability project implementation through their work. As such, Climate Corps simultaneously addresses climate and sustainability projects while also cultivating the next generation of environmental leaders. Since 2010, Climate Corps has worked with over 200 partners and 800 Fellows on 1,000 high-impact projects.
