For youth in Minneapolis, MN, USA – Paid Environmental Leadership Program


CEED Youth for Environmental Leadership & Learning (YELL!) Fellowship!

YELL! is a program for young people who are interested in social justice and protecting the environment.  It is a program to empower youth of color to make a difference in their own communities through learning and hands on community projects.

YELL! Participants receive a $500 a month stipend for the duration of the program (9 months) and are required to commit to 20 hours per month to the program

YELL! has five paid fellowship opportunities for people between the ages of 18 and 25 years old.  You will get to participate in workshops led by local and national leaders in environmental justice and social activism. You will get to learn about the history of how communities of color have been affected by pollution and toxics, and what they have done about it.  You will hear about exciting work happening all around the country (and the world) from environmental justice leaders in Indigenous communities, and communities of color.

Fellows will meet twice a month from August 2015-April 2016 and work on projects in their communities through this time. Find more details and applications below. Applications are due July 15, fellows will be notified late July. Contact or Sarah at 612-227-5265 for more information.
