Rogue Climate aims to inspire and develop the next generation of climate leaders and community organizers, especially from communities most impacted by climate change.

Rogue Climate hosts bi-annual internship programs for youth to become empowered to take action on climate justice within their communities.

We help youth leaders develop their organizing skills from environmental and social justice frameworks. Interns get hands-on experience and develop skills by doing the work.

Each internship cohort is a ten week long series of trainings, where 10-15 youth meet to learn, take action, and discuss topics including:

Community Organizing 101

Climate Change
and Migration

Direct Action

And Much More!

After completing the internship, youth are invited to join the Rogue Climate Action Team to continue developing their organizing skills. They gain experience working with Rogue Climate on local climate justice campaigns.

The Rogue Climate Action Team (RCAT) is a youth-led team focused on making change within their communities.  This youth leadership team has been trained through Rogue Climate’s youth internship program to organize for climate, transit, social and economic justice campaigns.

During the 2019 Global Climate Walkouts, RCAT organized across school districts to turn out more than 1000 people in Southern Oregon to demand climate justice.
