Frequently Asked Questions

This sounds like the coolest group EVER. How can I join?

Thank you! A good start would probably be to come to a meeting to get to know us! If you’re a student, find out if there are organizers on your campus by checking out our list of campus chapters. Also look over our regional organizing structure to see if you’re near one of our community nodes if you’re interested in our work at the regional level. We are proud of being horizontally organized, meaning that any interested new members are welcome to come to any meetings, and your input will be valued.

If you’d prefer to start with one-on-one contact, most members of our leadership team would be more than happy to take you out for coffee and tell you everything you want to know about what we do and where you might be able to fit in.

It also probably couldn’t hurt to get in touch with us if you’re thinking of showing up to something or just want to make initial contact.


I’m not actually a student. Am I still allowed to come to things?

We strive to be as inclusive and welcoming of an organization as possible, and despite our  name, we more than welcome youth who are not currently involved in traditional education to participate in our work. We’ve had very dedicated members who are recent college graduates, who are taking time off from school, or who have never gone to college at all. And when we say “student,” that has included high school students all the way through PhD candidates. Bottom line: we don’t want to limit the involvement of incredible people based on what seems to us like a technicality.

Whether you’re a student or not, if you’re interested in coming to a meeting or sitting down for coffee with someone, fill out our contact form or get in touch with any of our team directly.


Here’s my resume. Will you hire me?

We don’t hire – we’re an entirely volunteer-based youth organization. You’re more than welcome to come and work with us, but we don’t need to see your resume for that.

If you are looking for paid employment in the climate movement in Massachusetts, you might want to look at our 501(c)3 community partner, Better Future Project – they do amazing work and are sometimes hiring.


I’m with the media. Can I talk to someone from your organization about a story I’m writing?

Please send all media inquiries via our contact form and choose “Media Inquiries” from the drop-down menu. We will put you in touch with the most appropriate people as soon as possible. See past media coverage of our work > >

You can also try to get in touch with us through Twitter – our handle is @JustAndStable.
