The Grand Canyon Trust is hosting an online training program for young environmental justice leaders!
Join the Trust's Rising Leaders Program for three weeks of paid environmental justice training! LeaderShift will examine the path of fossil fuels from their source to their destination. We'll develop leadership skills, talk with frontline community members, and learn how to create environmental and social change.
Date and Time:

Spend the summer working with Grand Canyon Trust staff and partners to research historical and current grazing management of North Rim Ranches — 830,000 acres of public lands on the north rim of the Grand Canyon where the Grand Canyon Trust and a ranching partner run a small herd of cattle. Across these lands, we also work with scientists, universities, and land managers to conduct scientific research and restoration projects intended to support and improve the health of the land.
Spend the summer learning from Native leaders, storytellers, and Grand Canyon experts to develop curricula and interpretive materials that reflect tribal knowledge and histories of the region. As the Grand Canyon Program intern, you will build relationships, deepen your knowledge of environmental justice, and hone your skills in education and community engagement. If you want to protect the natural landscapes of the Grand Canyon and uplift the voices of Native people, this is the job for you!
The Uplift Climate Advocacy Coordinator will work with Grand Canyon Trust and Northern Arizona University’s Landscape Conservation Initiative to organize climate advocacy among young conservation leaders on the Colorado Plateau. A primary emphasis of this work and the position will be to oversee a yearly climate advocacy gathering known as Uplift.
