About California Climate Action Corps

In California, climate change is a threat to systems and people across the state. The impacts to our environment and health are worsening as we experience longer and more frequent droughts, devastating wildfires, and more. Each of us has a role to play. You can take meaningful action today to help communities across our state.

In 2020, as a part of California's comprehensive strategy to address the climate crisis, California Volunteers, Office of the Governor, created the country's first state-level climate service corps. The service corps was established to empower all Californians to take meaningful action to safeguard the climate.
