Help Us Build Stronger Communities and Future Leaders
CivicSpark is a Governor’s Initiative AmeriCorps Program that helps California communities improve their ability to respond to the defining crisis of our time – the economic, environmental and social impacts of climate change.
For more details on our program and how to get involved in partnering with us please download our sponsorship flyer.
Success Now: Each year, 68 CivicSpark fellows – organized into various regional “climate readiness teams” – will work with cities, schools and other public agencies to implement 100 local climate- and water-smart projects such as greenhouse gas inventories, complete streets plans, and campaigns to help residents conserve water. With the extra push, technical assistance, and practical resources from CivicSpark, these projects will succeed and move communities towards a healthier, safer, and more resilient future.
Future Leaders: Through their work on these innovative, real-world projects, our young CivicSpark fellows will gain exceptional career experience, preparing them to be the future leaders in California’s response to climate change.
