Long before the advent of Facebook, EarthCorps planted the seeds of a global network of environmental professionals in the US and abroad. More than twenty years later, EarthCorps is pushing new boundaries by innovating ecological practice, evolving how people learn leadership, and engaging diverse communities in hands-on action.
EarthCorps develops leaders to strengthen community and restore the health of our environment.
EarthCorps is a 501c3 non-profit located in Seattle, Washington.
At EarthCorps, we believe in the power of people to tackle the most pressing challenges facing our planet.
EarthCorps brings together passionate and hardworking young adults from the US and countries around the world, for a yearlong leadership training program in Seattle, Washington.
The Puget Sound is our classroom and our legacy.
Our corps members learn leadership skills by working collaboratively, leading community volunteers, and executing technical restoration projects along shorelines, trails and in forests. Every day our corps is hard at work, improving the health of the Puget Sound region.
After the yearlong program, these young leaders leave EarthCorps with the tools and skills to tackle the pressing issues of our time – including climate change, pollution, and ecological degradation – to create a better world for all of us.
We can’t do it alone.
EarthCorps depends on the generosity of committed volunteers and donors. More than 10,000 youth, business leaders, and community members join us annually, as we work to sustain and restore our public parks for future generations to enjoy. Dig in and volunteer with us.
