California Climate Action Corps is a newly launched, first-of-its-kind effort to empower Californians to take meaningful action to safeguard the climate. Climate Action Corps is dedicated to mobilizing climate actions designed to engage community members, activate change, and leave a lasting impact.
Climate Action Corps Fellows will be placed for service in teams of 2 with Host Partner organizations. Most of the placements will be in 5 target cities and surrounding regions: Fresno, Stockton, San Jose, Los Angeles, and Redlands.
Through project-based service work, Fellows will have:
A chance to learn real-world climate action skills through community action projects.
An opportunity to serve in a local government or nonprofit committed to taking action on climate change where you will be provided access to and support for the implementation of your service projects.
