Apply to be a CivicSpark Fellow for the 2022-23 Service Year!


CivicSpark offers unique opportunities for folks passionate about environmental and community resilience to gain direct experience, build strong networks, and gain professional, technical, and leadership skills through service.

What does it mean to be a CivicSpark Fellow?

CivicSpark Fellows serve with State, local, and community-based organizations tackling the most pressing environmental and social equity issues through planning and policy support for community resilience. 

As AmeriCorps members, all CivicSpark Fellows focus on getting things done through capacity building and direct action, professional development through training and service experiences, and strengthening communities through volunteer mobilization. 

While all projects are unique, Fellows’ service will follow the steps below:

  • Gap Assessments: Fellows identify project needs and set the scope of their service.
  • Service Projects: Fellows conduct research, planning, or implementation projects to address community needs.
  • Volunteer Engagement: Fellows mobilize volunteers to take action in their communities. 
  • Knowledge Sharing: Fellows sustain progress by training staff or sharing outcomes with local partners.
