Fellowship Opportunities

CivicSpark and Climate Action Corps are continuing to accept applications on a rolling basis until all positions are filled!


CivicSpark and Climate Action Corps offer unique opportunities for those passionate about environmental and community resilience to gain direct experience, build strong networks, and gain professional, technical, and leadership skills through service.

What does it mean to be a CivicSpark Fellow?

CivicSpark Fellows serve with State, local, and community-based organizations tackling the most pressing environmental and social equity issues through planning and policy support for community resilience. 

What does it mean to be a Climate Action Corps Fellow?

Climate Action Corps is part of a larger state-level climate initiative to address the climate crisis. CAC Fellows focus on engaging Californians with direct climate action to help protect vulnerable communities against the most adverse impacts of a changing climate.

As AmeriCorps members, all CivicSpark and Climate Action Corps Fellows focus on getting things done through capacity building and direct action, professional development through training and service experiences, and strengthening communities through volunteer mobilization.  While all projects are unique, Fellows’ service will follow the steps below:

  • Gap Assessments: Fellows identify project needs and set the scope of their service.
  • Service Projects: Fellows conduct research, planning, or implementation projects to address community needs.
  • Volunteer Engagement: Fellows mobilize volunteers to take action in their communities. 
  • Knowledge Sharing: Fellows sustain progress by training staff or sharing outcomes with local partners.
