DO YOU KNOW ANY YOUNG ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVISTS WHO WANT TO PROTECT THE
ENVIRONMENT?

The League of Conservation Voters Education Fund and Campus Green Vote are
cosponsoring seven regional Summer Training Academies for young
environmental activists (college students and recent graduates) to learn
“political skills to protect the environment.”

The 1999 Summer Training Academies will provide 350 young environmental
activists from across the country (50 at each Academy) the skills to become
the next generation of environmental leaders. Participants will use
campaign strategy, fundraising, persuasive speaking, outreach and more
skills to contribute to issue and community-based campaigns throughout the
country in 1999-2000 and beyond.

Through skills sessions, lectures from distinguished environmentalists,
role-plays, and campaign simulations, participants will learn how to impact
critical environmental issues, protect the Earth from politicians, plan a
campaign, get the word out online and in the media, organize a voter
registration drive, and Get Out the Vote.

The four-day regional STAs will be held in the following cities:
Washington, DC – June 2-5
Ann Arbor, MI – June 7-10
Atlanta, GA – June 11-14
Boulder, CO – June 16-19
San Francisco, CA – June 22-25
Boston, MA – June 25-28
Seattle, WA – June 29-July 2

If you know any young environmental activists please let them know of this
exciting opportunity. The training and all accommodations are free!
However, the deadline is coming soon — May 7 — so interested participants
should act now!

Please have interested activists call Andrew at 202-785-0730, email
sta@envirocitizen.org, or check out the STA website at
