Fellowship Award: CivicSpark Fellows serve at local government agencies across the state of California, working to expand their agency’s capacity to address resilience issues such as climate change and housing. I’m currently serving at the City of Santa Monica, working on building decarbonization and sustainable food.
What have you enjoyed most about the program? I’ve most enjoyed getting to know my cohort of fellows. It’s been an incredible experience getting to learn and grow with a group of like-minded people who are all passionate about environmentalism and have so much diverse experience that I can learn from.
What was the most challenging aspect of the program? The most challenging aspect has been diving into the technical side of the environmental sector and learning more about the functionality of green tech.
CivicSpark is an AmeriCorps program in which Fellows are matched with Project Partners (state, local and community-based organizations) to serve on at least one project, which benefits at least one local public agency. Through project service, Fellows gain hands-on experience tackling the most pressing environmental and social equity problems facing communities today. Projects are spread throughout regions across California, including the Central Coast, San Joaquin Valley, Greater Los Angeles, San Diego area, Inland Empire, Sacramento area, Sierra Nevada, and San Francisco Bay area.
