2022-2023 CivicSpark Fellow

The CivicSpark Program is a unique opportunity for both individuals and public agencies interested in building community capacity for climate, water, and housing issues. Through the program, fellows are paired with local government agencies, tribes, and nonprofits to work on projects that build resiliency and mitigate the effects of climate change. Fellows work at sites across California, Colorado, and Washington for an 11-month service term.

Participating in the CivicSpark program is extremely beneficial for fellows and the places they serve. Whether you are interested in being a fellow for the 2023-2024 service term, or you would like to have a fellow at your organization, we encourage you to apply!

They work with diverse groups of stakeholders, including government officials, community leaders, and local residents.

The program also offers extensive training, professional development, and networking opportunities that enable fellows to develop their skills and prepare for a career in sustainability. Click this link to apply to be a fellow!
