Recharge! Retreat

Call for applicants!

The Focus the Nation Recharge! Retreat is a week-long, expenses-paid retreat for young clean energy leaders. This year, it will take place August 12th-18th on Mount Hood in central Oregon. The retreat brings together 20 students from four quadrants: storytellers, politicos, technicians, and innovators, to focus on how to accelerate the nation’s clean energy transition. Participants will engage in collaborative discussions, take trips to visit different types of energy facilities, and develop their skills as leaders. It is a week to truly “recharge,” so there is plenty of time for fun, games, and spectacular outdoor experiences. For much more information, including an amazing video created by the Perennials Project, check out the website.

Applications are due April 1st, so don’t hesitate to send yours in!

Meredith Jacobson’s testimonial: I attended last year’s Recharge! Retreat and it changed my life. I learned so much from my amazing peers who are doing incredible work on their respective campuses around the country. Mount Hood was a beautiful setting to deeply explore our power as students, and how each of us is in a unique position to contribute to the clean energy movement. Getting to experience a wind farm, a coal-fired power plant, and a hydropower plant was eye-opening in that I began to understand energy in a more tangible way. I made connections and developed skills at this retreat that I will keep for the rest of my life.
