Green Iowa AmeriCorps-6 Month Position
Green Iowa AmeriCorps is helping Iowans low-impact residential weatherization, energy education, and community outreach services. This grant-funded community service organization housed at the University of Northern Iowa’s Center for Energy and Environmental Education (UNI CEEE) in Cedar Falls has satellite offices in Cedar Rapids, Decorah, Dubuque, and Spirit Lake, Iowa. This unique grassroots program actively facilitates energy conservation efforts for residents throughout Northeastern and Northwest Iowa. . In addition to performing direct service, members of Green Iowa AmeriCorps are encouraged to expand personal energy efficiency knowledge. Our program hopes to train the next generation of ‘green-collar’ workers through a combination of field trips, presentations, and hands-on learning. Members have the opportunity to build leadership abilities through coordinator roles as well as developing their abilities to function within a team setting. Members have access to free trainings, learn about green building techniques, and engage in extensive community engagement. We intend to hire socially-minded individuals who want to make a difference in the community. Applicants should express an interest in energy efficiency/renewable energy, sustainable design/construction, and green living. Applicants should demonstrate an ability to work as a team or individually on projects that require learning/teaching new skills or participating in physical labor. Applicants should be self-starters, capable of working with minimal supervision.
