Job: California Climate Action Corps Fellow - Americorps - multiple locations in California (posted Oct 26, 2020)

Climate Action Corps is dedicated to mobilizing climate actions designed to engage community members, empower change, and leave a lasting impact. Selected Fellows will spend 7.5 months supporting community climate action projects through CivicSpark, a program of the Local Government Commission (LGC) implemented in partnership with California Volunteers.

Fellows will be placed in teams of 2 with Host Partner organizations. Most of the placements will be in 5 target Cities and surrounding regions: Fresno, Stockton, San Jose, Los Angeles, and Redlands.

Through project-based service work, Fellows will have:

  • A chance to learn real-world climate action skills through community action projects.
  • An opportunity to serve in a local government or nonprofit committed to taking action on climate change where you will be provided access to and support for the implementation of your service projects.

Participating in Climate Action Corps will provide Fellows with an opportunity to be part of this unique inaugural cohort, a community, and statewide force of emerging leaders while also being connected to the well-established CivicSpark network of leaders and alumni. While each placement will be unique, all CivicSpark Climate Action Corps Fellows provide support through a common four-step approach designed to help Fellows make meaningful use of their time within their projects, agencies, and communities:

Gap Assessments: In order to understand their Host Partner’s needs and goals, at the start of the service term Fellows interview staff and review key documents and work with their Site Supervisor and our staff to finalize goals, and a project scope they can implement over the service year.

Service Projects: Fellows spend roughly 80% of their service year implementing a specific climate action project based on the gap assessment results such as:

  • Facilitating the expansion of an urban greening program through outreach, education, and event planning.
  • Strengthening Food waste recovery by working with waste haulers, schools, and community groups to bolster community kitchen capacity.
  • Preparing and delivering wildfire prevention programs to community groups or schools to improve home protection and awareness.

Volunteer Engagement: A major component of the Climate Action Corps program is having Fellows foster community engagement by establishing new volunteer programs or enhancing existing programs that provide meaningful ways for community members to engage on climate action.

Transitioning Expertise: To wrap up the service term Fellows share their findings, summary of work and next steps. These take the form of a transitional report, and presentations or trainings with staff and stakeholders.
