Green Corps is looking for college graduates who are ready to take on the biggest environmental challenges of our day. In Green Corps’ year-long paid program, you’ll get intensive training in the skills you’ll need to make a difference in the world. You’ll get hands-on experience fighting to solve urgent environmental problems — global warming, deforestation, water pollution and many others — with groups such as Sierra Club and Greenpeace. And, when you graduate from Green Corps, we’ll help you find a career with one of the nation’s leading environmental and social change groups.

II. Andaman Discoveries in Thailand
Andaman Discoveries (www.andamandiscoveries.com), a leader in sustainable development in Thailand, invites students to take part in our award-winning 2011 field projects. They are requesting volunteers for community based field projects and internships. Timing: Flexible, minimum 2 weeks

Choose from a diverse range of projects, from working with needy youth to locally-led conservation projects, from creating local handicrafts to community gardens. A Buddhist meditation session and our authentic Thai cooking courses should ensure a perfect end to a rewarding day! (Please see attachment for available projects).

The North Andaman area of Thailand is an undeveloped stretch of coastline just next to the popular resort destinations of Phuket. Coral reefs, mangroves, and tropical rainforests are just minutes away from each other. Fishermen and farmers still survive by their traditional livelihoods. Buddhist, Muslim, and Moken villages live side by side in harmony. These friendly people invite you to experience their way of life.

Projects start at £180/week based on a minimum of 2 weeks
