To change everything, it takes everyone!

We’d love to have you join us in fighting for a livable planet! It will take every one of us, and there’s an important role to play, whatever your skills, whatever your interests, whatever amount of time you have.

Volunteer!

Volunteering with 350 Madison is a rewarding way to spend your time. You do not need to have prior experience in the climate field or even know much about the movement. All you need is a willingness to help and learn. Below are some of our more pressing volunteer positions. If none of these strike your fancy, there are tons of opportunities within each campaign team. If you would like to volunteer for one of these positions or you want to learn more, contact our Volunteer Coordinator at nikki.darga@350madison.org.

The Communication Action Team (CAT) is looking for social media savvy volunteers to help get the word out about our work. There are opportunities to work with our website, various social media channels, and the press.
Especially in today’s world of Zoom meetings and working remotely, 350 Madison needs technology to run smoothly. If you are interested in supporting all of our work behind the scenes and have a background with computers and software, consider helping us out as an IT volunteer!
Our Divest & Defund team has been doing weekly actions to put pressure on Chase Bank to divest from fossil fuel interests. They typically take place on Saturday mornings and are a great way to make a difference and spend some virtual time with others.

Meet our teams…

350 Madison relies on two types of teams to accomplish our mission. Campaign teams work on core advocacy goals, while operations teams support the campaigns. See something you’d be good at or something you’d like to learn how to do? Fill out this form to let us know your interests, and we’ll schedule a time to talk about how you can best contribute.
