Advance Your Community Resilience Goals with a CivicSpark Fellow!

Partner Applications for the 2024-25 Service Year have closed – applications will open early Spring 2025 for the 2025-26 service term.

Since 2014, CivicSpark—the award-winning and evidence-based AmeriCorps program powered by CivicWell—has helped over 300 communities in California, Washington, and Colorado build their capacity to meet resilience goals while providing a launchpad for almost 1,000 emerging leaders.

Organizations who participate in CivicSpark are 5 to 15 times more likely to achieve their project goals than organizations who don’t have a Fellow.

How It Works

Each year, CivicSpark recruits Fellows through a highly competitive application process.

Fellows spend 11 months embedded in government agencies and community organizations, serving 1,300 hours implementing a needed sustainability and resilience project, while also building long-term capacity to ensure the work is sustained after their service year. While all projects are unique, your Fellow’s service will include:


  • Access a proven community resilience model
  • Increase resources for underserved communities
  • Attract and retain diverse young leaders
  • Reach and exceed your organizational goals
