Environmental Leadership Training


Contemplating a green career change? Not sure how to start? Acterra’s Be the Change environmental leadership program can give you the training and experience you need to help you down the path to a new "green" career. Many of our  graduates have used the program as a way to ease back into the workforce after a period at home, and others have used the experience to "green" their current job or company. Be the Change is training a corps of leaders of all ages who are developing productive, innovative solutions to the environmental challenges before us. The program offers a 10-month course that starts in September and features monthly seminars that teach participants how to be effective change agents where they live, work, worship, or play. The curriculum revolves around environmental information, personal skills mastery, and social change processes—and everyone does a project to put what he or she has learned into practice. We have top-notch speakers and advisors, and the other class members are also emerging leaders with demonstrated skills. All members learn from one another and come  away with a group of 25-30 new friends. We are holding one more info session for potential program applicants to learn more about program content, meet others who care about our environment, and talk with Be the Change participants, advisors, and program staff. Contact info: Rebecca Araiz Iverson, Director, Be the Change Environmental Leadership Program, 650-922-1787 (cell). YOU are the leader we are waiting for! Apply now for the class of 2009-2010 (September-June). For more information, visit ACTERRA
