CivicSpark, a Governor’s Initiative AmeriCorps program dedicated to building capacity for local governments to address climate change, is now recruiting members for the 2015-16 service year. Through CivicSpark, recent college graduates gain valuable work experience while acquiring technical skill-sets, building their professional network, and creating a meaningful and lasting impact.
Each year throughout California, 48 CivicSpark members complete research, planning or implementation projects that provide local government agencies with the support they need in their climate and sustainability initiatives. Members support nearly 100 cities, schools and other public agencies on projects focused on sustainable transportation, energy efficiency, climate action planning, adaptation, drought response and more.
Member applications are accepted on a rolling basis until the start of the program in October. Interested graduates and young professionals are encouraged to learn more and apply at www.civicspark.lgc.org
