EDUCATE KIDS • TRAIN LOCAL COMMUNITY MEMBERS • PROVIDE ENERGY
UPGRADES FOR LOCAL NON-PROFITS
Candidates must be dedicated, passionate and motivated to make a
difference while taking on a leadership role on a local project!
Energy Service Corps is working across California to tackle over use of
energy this summer. We’re starting by educating kids, ensuring that the next
generation understands about energy, the environment and what they can do to
create a better world! We’re also getting out to help their parents and
neighbors save energy and save money through quick energy surveys to help them
find savings and connect them to local resources. And to get communities
started, we’ll help local shelters and community centers start saving right
now, by organizing volunteers to come together to seal up cracks around windows
and doors, change out old light-bulbs and do other hands-on projects to stop
energy waste right away.
Our members take on leadership roles in every aspect – from teaching local
school children fun and interactive lessons about energy and the environment,
to leading energy surveys of local buildings, and bringing together community
groups, VIPs, volunteers and the media around big service projects. Members
forge partnerships with community and faith-based groups, meet with local and
state officials to encourage their participation in community projects, contact
the media to write about energy efficiency and adapt educational activities to
fit the needs of local communities and to appeal to a wide range of age groups
– all in an effort to foster long-term community stewardship and increase
energy efficiency across California.
This year alone, our Corps members will educate 30,000 kids and arm 7,500
people with the tools they need to save energy & the environment.
Candidates must be able to complete a minimum of 300 hours of service between
June 2nd and August 31st. Accepted applicants will receive a $1,208
education award upon completion of the term through AmeriCorps. The education
award may be used to pay for school or to pay off qualified student loans, and
is good for 7 years.
All applications will be reviewed and qualified candidates will be
interviewed. All enrolled members are required to attend an orientation.
