About EarthCorps

EarthCorps is a non-profit organization based in Seattle, Washington that develops environmental leaders to strengthen community and restore the health of our environment. We believe in the power of people – acting through their collective responsibility to one another and our planet – to tackle the most pressing challenges facing our world, and we envision a world in which people and nature thrive together.   

To cultivate this important work, we train young leaders in ecological restoration. We bring together young adults – who we call corps members - from the US and across the globe for an environmental leadership development and green-jobs training program where we care for the lands and waters of Puget Sound. Corps members gain hands-on leadership experience, cross-cultural skills, and learn technical environmental restoration while building a close-knit community as they care for our natural world. These emerging environmental leaders “think globally and act locally” in leading community volunteers to complete restoration projects such as native tree planting, invasive plant removal, salmon stream restoration, wetland and shoreline restoration, and trail construction.   

At the conclusion of the program, these leaders return to their local communities with the skills and enthusiasm required to tackle the pressing issues of our time – including climate change, pollution and ecological degradation – to help create a better world for all of us. Since its inception in 1993, EarthCorps has trained more than 1,000 environmental leaders from the US and nearly 80 countries around the world.  

EarthCorps is embarking on our next chapter: we just hired a bold and visionary new executive director and are in the process of creating our new strategic plan to guide us as we transform our organization to meet the environmental justice and racial equity needs of today. Come be a part of the transformation of this organization! 

Commitment to Racial Equity

EarthCorps strongly believes in the values of racial equity, diversity, and inclusion. EarthCorps works to ensure that everyone feels engaged and supported in all areas of the organization's operations as we work to become a fully inclusive, multi-cultural, and anti-racist organization.
