Environmental Leadership Program Overview

Explore new skills and tools at Kinship.

Kinship Program At Kinship, we believe in investing in individuals with the potential to advance the future of conservation. We do this by selecting the best and the brightest and awarding them a $6,000 stipend and a month of valuable, cutting-edge training.

Our month-long curriculum is delivered by a faculty of global experts who work closely with each carefully selected cohort of Fellows to explore fresh ways to apply market-based approaches to environmental concerns. With our case study methodology, you'll find new solutions to your real life conservation challenges. Over the course of your month with us, you'll attend dynamic sessions, participate in collaborative and independent projects, and enjoy a rich, multi-faceted experience.

Our Fellows' track record of success makes it clear that our investment benefits not only Fellows, but also their organizations, and the greater conservation community. Fellows bring home new ideas, tools, and fresh inspiration.

If you've been working in a conservation field for five years, and you're eager to strengthen your ability to lead - you're a great candidate for Kinship.

"There's nothing else quite like Kinship in the conservation space; the experience offers mid-career professionals an opportunity to take a chunk of time from their day-to-day careers to explore a range of topics, from economics to international carbon offsets, as well as work on a related project. The classroom experience was great, but by far the most rewarding part was being able to live, play and work with other Fellows for an entire month - this was truly an honor."
