Climate Impact Corps
There are three Initiatives within Climate Impact Corps: the Community Forestry Initiative, the Community Resilience Initiative, and the Home Energy Initiative.
Community Forestry Initiative
Members serve at a nonprofit or public agency with a mission to preserve and protect Minnesota’s environment and strengthen communities, with a focus on preserving and increasing tree canopy.
Community Resilience Initiative
Members support sustainability projects, encourage local environmental action, and provide education to help households and organizations make sustainable choices.
Home Energy Initiative
Through the Home Energy Initiative, members support Minnesotans who are eligible for the Weatherization Assistance Program. Members can help these households through education and services that potentially create an immediate impact on their quality of life and cost of living. Note that the Home Energy Initiative is focused on weatherizing individual homes, and members are placed with community organizations. Check out the Minnesota Energy Climate Corps if you’re interested in serving with a crew of other members that will help make larger (often public) buildings energy efficient.
