Policy Fellowships


The New York Youth Climate Leaders are looking for fellows to help with our biggest policy campaigns. The fellowship lasts from mid-February until the end of the legislative session (mid June). There will be approximately 5 hours of work per week. Fellows will be expected to attend and participate in every policy call. Additionally, fellows will be asked to attend a training on op-eds and LTEs by NY²CL's Press Director.

This fellow will be expected to: 

  • Take notes on fossil fuel subsidies coalition calls, every other Monday at 1 PM.

  • Help out with day-to-day subsidies coalition tasks.

  • Write one op-ed and two LTEs about the campaign.

  • Put together and edit information for our website about the subsidies campaign.

  • Put together one educational social media post about the topic in collaboration with Sophie, our Director of Social Media.

  • Brainstorm and organize an event likely to catch media attention.

Lobby Day Fellow

This fellow will be expected to: 

  • Create the lobby day registration form.
