Climate change can seem overwhelming and terrifying–especially for young people. But when it comes to the way the world is evolving, climate change will not disappear on its own. We need to come together to help fix it.
President Biden, on Wednesday, September 30, 2023 announced the formation of an American Climate Corps which will train 20,000 young people to work in the clean energy economy. It will put a new generation of Americans to work conserving our lands and waters, bolstering community resilience, advancing environmental justice, deploying clean energy, implementing energy efficient technologies, and tackling climate change. American Climate Corps members will gain the skills necessary to access good-paying jobs that are aligned with high-quality employment opportunities after they complete their paid training or service program.
