Columbia Climate Corps are small group climate and sustainability-focused traveling programs designed for motivated high school students. These summer programs combine intentional travel with in-depth educational opportunities, taking students across the United States and abroad to experience a destination through the lens of climate change and focus intently on one or two location-specific themes.
Faculty and staff from the Columbia Climate School will join students on these trips, engaging them in cutting-edge research, leading lectures and facilitating workshops. Led by a dynamic team of experienced group leaders, students gain critical skills and knowledge through excursions and field-based learning activities, discover and develop new and existing passions around climate change, and build lasting friendships with like-minded peers, group leaders, and Columbia Climate School experts.
