Youth Climate Fellowship Donate Page

Youth are Our Future!

In 2020 SD350 launched our first cohort of high school climate fellowships. Support our continued work to empower and equip young activists to stand up to the fossil fuel industry and protect our community’s well-being. We deliver training, networking opportunities and hands-on experience to provide effective pathways to leadership.

Help us mobilize passionate young San Diegans to fight climate change and climate injustice through bold policy campaigns, education and outreach, and empowering their peers to act. 

Help us meet our goal by May 13th so we can fund this program for the fall school term. Each 1-term fellowship costs ~$2,500, program coordination and coaching cost ~$3,500, and materials and supplies, $1,500. TOTAL: $15,000.


Everyone who donates $25+ will receive a complimentary print of this art by Y4C youth artwork by Victoria Krasnyanskiy!

Meet Our Fellows on May 13!

Join us for an evening with youth who are passionate about empowering their peers to take Climate Action through education, skill-building, leadership, and activism! This hour-long event will feature a panel of SanDiego350’s Youth Climate Fellows where you’ll learn about their ongoing work, ask questions of young climate leaders, and learn how you can support this work in the coming year.
