We have many volunteer needs and appreciate contributions at any level. You can check out whether 350 Madison is right for you by attending our monthly meetings or getting in touch with one of our teams (see below).
Here are some of our current volunteer openings:

We are looking for a well-organized, energetic individual with excellent communication skills. Volunteer coordination experience preferred.

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.
The Tar Sands Team is fighting Enbridge tar sands pipelines in Wisconsin. Our aims are to block expansion of Line 61 and to halt plans for an adjacent Line 66. We support efforts led by those most impacted, including tribes, landowners, and affected community members.

Divest & Defund
2016 was the hottest year on record; 2017 was the second-hottest. The Divest & Defund Team focuses on convincing institutions that investments in fossil fuel are not only ethically and fiscally irresponsible, but are literally wrecking the planet we call home—all for profit. Banks are our current focus since without their support, dirty pipeline projects can’t get funded.

Community Climate Solutions
Community Climate Solutions focuses on making change across Dane County, at both systems and individual levels. One campaign seeks to help local governments implement urgently needed climate solutions. Another collaborates with other local groups to increase climate action and awareness.
The Communication Action Team (CAT) provides communication support to the campaigns. CAT services encompass website and social media, press releases, letters to the editor and op-eds, radio spots, email blasts, and photography and video. CAT especially needs new members with expertise in video and graphics arts.
