Generation of Climate Leaders

Meet CivicSpark

CivicSpark is an award-winning and evidence-based AmeriCorps program, powered by CivicWell, that builds local government and community capacity to address emerging and entrenched community resilience challenges.

The Fellowship

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 support local governments and community organizations in advancing their resilience initiatives.
