CivicSpark AmeriCorps Fellow Posted Jun 09
CivicSpark , Los Angeles, CA (Multiple locations statewide)
Launch Your Career in Sustainability While Making a Lasting Impact

Apply now to become a CivicSpark AmeriCorps Fellow for the 2017-18 service year at http://civicspark.lgc.org/join-civicspark/fellow/.

CivicSpark—a Governor’s Initiative AmeriCorps program dedicated to building capacity for local governments to address climate change, water, and land-use needs—is currently recruiting 70 motivated recent college graduates who are interested in gaining professional experience and developing technical skills while creating a meaningful and lasting impact. During the 11-month service year (September 2017 – August 2018), CivicSpark Fellows will complete research, planning, or implementation projects that provide local government agencies with the support they need to advance their water and sustainability initiatives.

The program offers two fellowship tracks: CivicSpark Climate (50 Fellows) and CivicSpark Water (20 Fellows). Climate Fellows, organized into eight regional teams (San Diego, Greater Los Angeles Area, San Francisco Bay Area, San Joaquin Valley, Central Coast, Sacramento, Sierra Nevada, and North Coast) with a Regional Coordinator, work on mitigation and adaptation projects on a range of topics including sustainable transportation, energy efficiency, implementation of climate action plans, and GHG inventories and benchmarks, among others. Water Fellows focus specifically on local government challenges related to water and land-use, and serve with local leaders responding to statewide priorities in water resources, such as implementing the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) and the California Water Action Plan.

While projects vary, Fellows can expect to work on a range of tasks including meeting facilitation, community outreach, data collection and analysis, and report writing. Fellows will also have the opportunity to work on volunteer engagement projects, as well as attend regular trainings to build professional and technical skills. Fellows will complete their service year with a strong understanding of working with local governments as well as experience in using key climate change mitigation and adaptation or water management tools.

Learn more about the program by visiting our website at http://civicspark.lgc.org/. You can also check out our Fellow FAQ page at http://civicspark.lgc.org/fellow-faq/ if you have any questions.
