Become a Raven!

We currently have Corps in:

Don’t live in one of those places, and want to start a Raven Corps in your school or community? We’ll have very exciting news for you soon so keep checking back, and make sure to follow us on Instagram!


Ravens are young activists who promote environmental sustainability and compassion through plant-based advocacy within their communities. Anyone can join as long as they are:

  • Between the ages of 14 and 22

  • Live in Portland, Oregon, San Diego, California, or Adelaide Australia (opportunities to start a Raven Corps where you live coming soon!)

  • Able to commit for at least one academic year

  • Able to devote time to Raven Corps activism and activities every week

  • Ready to plan and participate in individualized “Operations” (advocacy events, campaigns, or projects) that are made up of “The Four Phases”:

    Phase 1: Outreach - During this phase, Ravens practice having respectful conversations with their community members about animal agriculture. The goal is to have thoughtful dialogues about the problem, listen, and brainstorm solutions for how we can ALL build a better food system.

Phase 2: Planning - During Phase 2, Ravens plan their Operations, using the solutions they brainstormed with community members as inspiration.

Phase 3: Implementation - Phase 3 is when a Raven’s activism comes to life! Ravens put their plans into action and complete their Operations.

Phase 4: Resource Development - This final phase gives Ravens the opportunity to reflect on their activism, gauge its efficacy, and share what they have learned with other youth activists by developing a resource.

Throughout each Operation, The Raven Corps stands beside youth activists to provide support and resources as well as the space to brainstorm, create, and reflect freely. We believe in the power of young change-makers, and are here to help them succeed!
