Supporting the Climate Leaders of Tomorrow Through Climate Career Pathways

The urgency of solving the climate crisis can not be overstated. To ensure that we reduce greenhouse gas emissions fast enough by 2030 through 2050, not only do we need to see action from those in power today, but we also need to make sure BIPOC decision-makers of tomorrow have the right skills to leverage their genius and lived experience to maintain the climate transition.
At Dream.Org, we understand that equipping Black and Latinx talent with the skills to combat and adapt to this change is paramount to an equitable transition. We believe in creating pathways for untapped talent to pioneer green innovation, foster sustainable development, mitigate the impacts of climate change, and generate wealth. As part of our commitment, we are launching the Climate Career Pathways Scholarship Fund.

Providing Skills for Sustainability

Through the Climate Career Pathways Scholarship Fund, we are investing in future Black and Latinx leaders of the Climate and Sustainability sectors. We provide up to $3,500 in scholarships for trainings, courses, and professional certifications, targeting areas where the transition towards sustainability is most crucial — energy, business, environmental, transportation, and infrastructure sectors. Many young adults looking for their first job struggle to find their way into the workplace because they lack the skills needed to work in sectors that interest them. This program exists to help more people land their first job.
Anyone can help mitigate climate change; we especially need talent from communities most-impacted by pollution to be a part of the solution to the climate crisis. Through this fund, we allow individuals to explore an array of job and career paths within the broad spectrum of climate and sustainability, from renewable energy technicians to environmental lawyers, and from clean car engineers to green building professionals. The more people of color that find their place in sustainability, the greater our chances are to reach our climate goals to ensure everyone benefits from the emerging green economy.
There is no better time than now to turn your passion for sustainability into a fulfilling career. This program is for you if you live in the United States and need this financial support to follow your dreams of working within sustainability. The application deadline is October 6th, 2023 at 11:59 PM Pacific, so don't wait!
