About CivicSpark

CivicSpark is an AmeriCorps program that is dedicated to building capacity for local governments in California, Washington, and Colorado to address emerging environmental and social equity resilience challenges such as climate change, water resource management, affordable housing, and mobility.

Each year, CivicSpark recruits 100+ emerging leaders who are interested in gaining professional experience in the community resilience field and developing technical skills, all while creating a meaningful and lasting impact in their service community. During the 11-month service year, CivicSpark Fellows will complete research, planning, or implementation projects that provide the support public agencies need to advance their resilience initiatives.
