Who we are & what we're up to

The GREEN Program (TGP) is an experiential education and workforce development program for young leaders in sustainable development. Created for students, by students, TGP has introduced a new model for education abroad– driven by a desire to provide purposeful, hands-on industry exposure at a fraction of the time and cost. Inspired by the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals, our short-term, accredited, career focused approach creates truly transformative experiences for students around the world– unlocking doors to governmental, public, and private facility access, exclusive tours, and unique bucket-list experiences.

Our unique partnerships with universities around the world allow our students to have a truly authentic experience by learning from local professors, experts and government officials. TGP seeks to redefine the classroom by enabling one-of-a-kind experiences like studying the effects of climate change on the top of our world’s glaciers. 

We help students maximize their winter, spring, and summer breaks in order to allow them to get in a fulfilling educational abroad experience within just 10 days. 


We don’t want students to choose between a job, internship, or a study abroad experience. We want them to do it all.

Our program model is unique due to its short-term, accredited, experiential, and career focused emphasis. In fact, 99% of GREEN Alumni say that TGP has refined their purpose professionally, personally, or academically.

2017 has given way to several significant milestones for The GREEN Program, including new international program development, the launch of our workforce development platform and the launch of our scholarship fund for disadvantaged, underrepresented and underserved students.  In addition to our core educational programs in Iceland (renewable energy) and Peru (water resource management), we expanded the program this year to include two new opportunities– Hawai’i and Japan. These program locations enable students to experience sustainable development first-hand in a truly unforgettable way.

As we grow, we are excited to invite more creative, results-driven members to our team.  TGP is proud to be a workplace inspired by inclusion and diversity. Join our team today and be a part of our growing impact-organization!

"It was so awesome to be in a smaller learning and co-working environment where everyone is so happy and eager to help... I am so proud to be a part of such a great organization that binds together people who are progressively trying to better the world. It is so exciting to know that other young people are concerned and are ready to take action!"
