The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) is now accepting applications from organizations interested in hosting an AmeriCorps member for the 2018-2019 MN GreenCorps program year. Applications from eligible organizations interested in hosting MN GreenCorps members are due by 5:00 pm CDT on Friday, March 23, 2018.
The MPCA plans to place up to 42 full-time members with host sites throughout Minnesota. Members serve approximately 40 hours a week for 11 months beginning in late September 2018 through August 2019.
Minnesota GreenCorps is an environmentally focused AmeriCorps program coordinated by the MPCA, which places AmeriCorps members with organizations throughout Minnesota to spend a year of service addressing critical environmental issues, while gaining experience and learning valuable job skills.
Eligible organizations include public entities (local, regional, state, tribal), school districts, not for profit institutions of higher education, and 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organizations. Organizations may apply for Minnesota GreenCorps members who will serve on projects in one of the following four focus areas:
- Air pollutant reduction
- Community readiness and outreach
- Green infrastructure improvements
- Waste reduction, recycling, and organics management
To apply to be a host site and for more information on the program, please visit www.pca.state.mn.us/mngreencorps.
