CivicSpark AmeriCorps Fellow
 
 
 
CivicSpark is a Governor's Initiative AmeriCorps program dedicated to building local governments' capacity to address emerging environmental and social equity resilience challenges such as climate change, water resource management, affordable housing, and mobility. For 11 months, 140 Fellows are placed with local governments to complete research, planning, or implementation projects that provide the support public agencies need to advance their resilience initiatives. CivicSpark projects focus on supporting capacity in environmental and social equity resilience issues. Environmental projects focus on addressing widespread, persistent environmental crises by facilitating effective solutions in areas such as energy efficiency, climate adaptation and mitigation, green infrastructure, and groundwater management. Social Equity projects focus on opportunities to relieve significant socioeconomic pressures that impact the quality of life, public health, or economic opportunity in areas such as multi-modal transportation, affordable housing, and broadband access. Fellows are spread regionally throughout the state. Each region has a Regional Coordinator who oversees the various Fellows in their area, providing guidance, mentorship, and support for the Fellows' professional development goals. Site Supervisors are the Fellows' on-site contact, who works with Fellows on a day-to-day basis and provides assistance on project work, and supporting the Fellows' professional growth in the workplace.
