We want change. We want a more equal and democratic America. We want a country that respects and defends women’s health. We want a greener country that doesn’t let ideology blind us to science. Many Americans share our views on today’s problems. Yet too often, it feels like our country, or our state, or our city is going in the wrong direction. So what can you do? How do you make change? How do you learn and master the practice of making change?

Change Corps is a training academy for activists. If you’re serious about becoming an organizer, we offer a yearlong, three-step program that will give you the skills, the hands-on experience, and the opportunity to launch your career in social change.
