Mission Statement

Empowers Californians to take meaningful action to serve and help protect our most vulnerable communities against the harshest impacts of climate change.


The California Climate Action Corps (CCAC) is an AmeriCorps service program that’s part of a California statewide initiative to address and mitigate the effects of climate change. CCAC matches Fellows with organizations-public agencies, tribes, nonprofit organizations, and educational institutions-to mobilize community members to take direct climate action through education, volunteer mobilization, and assessment focused on urban greening, organic waste diversion and edible food recovery, and wildfire resiliency. This is a climate-focused, workforce development program for emerging climate and environmental leaders. CCAC recruits, trains, and supports Fellows throughout the duration of the program. These are paid Fellowships, similar to an internship, with 30-60 dedicated hours for training and professional development. Fellows work directly with host organizations to develop strategies and projects to advance climate actions that engage community members, cultivate change, and leave a lasting impact.
