Our Projects

2020-21 CivicSpark Projects

Below is a list of projects still available for the upcoming 2020-21 service year. This list is not complete – due to COVID impacts this year, projects have been more fluid than usual due to changes in priorities within local governments, causing some projects to be removed after being posted, others added later on, and some project descriptions may change closer to the start of the service year (or after). This page will be updated almost daily with any new or filled projects, so be sure to check back every few weeks to see new additions and changes. To see the list of all projects (both filled and not), click here.

To help identify where specific projects are located, they are grouped by region roughly following California’s Fourth Climate Assessment geographical regions. Listed under the region are the counties included within their area. To the right is a map that shows the general regions for the program.

As projects begin to fill, we will remove them from the list, but you can still find the full list of projects by following this link. An opening that says “1 of 2” means there is still 1 position open of 2.

Each project section includes the project name, agency name, city, the number of Fellows that will be serving in the project (“Openings”), the focus areas, and desired skills for the project. To view a full description of the project, click on the “Project Description” under the ones you are interested in.
