The Global Center on Adaptation actively supports students and young professionals to become leaders in climate change adaptation. As part of our commitment to build on, improve, and deliver breakthrough climate adaptation solutions, we have established two challenging programs for university graduates and young professionals, who are committed to make a difference: the Young Leaders Program and the 20/20 Adaptation Professionals Program

The Global Center on Adaptation offers internships through its Young
Leaders Program. Young Leaders work with our team on issues surrounding a
new global climate adaptation agenda. Interns contribute to our policy,
advocacy, and research efforts that help societies across the world
become more resilient to climate-related threats.

vision and mission.

Young Leaders can expect to enhance their understanding of climate change adaptation, and what it takes to drive forward a new global agenda. They gain experiences that enable them to consider a wide range of perspectives and connect different points of view, and develop interpersonal and leadership skills that are essential for excelling in challenging international environments.
