Climate Fellows get paid to gain the skills and experience needed to be successful in a clean energy career.

The Minnesota Energy Climate Corps is a team-based program that prioritizes personal and professional growth through hands-on experience while working on challenging and impactful energy efficiency projects. Projects include performing energy audits (data collection) and basic efficiency maintenance (weatherization, furnace performance tune-ups) in facilities at state parks as well as buildings in the Twin Cities region. Fellows will also gain experience engaging youth and adult community members about energy efficiency, sustainability, and climate impact mitigation. 

Serving with Minnesota Energy Climate Corps is a paid, full-time AmeriCorps experience that requires a full-year (11-month) commitment.

AmeriCorps is the federal agency connecting individuals and organizations through service and volunteering. AmeriCorps members serve directly with nonprofit organizations (like Conservation Corps Minnesota & Iowa) to tackle our nation’s most pressing challenges. Members join to give back to their communities while gaining a foundation of marketable skills for future careers. All Climate Fellows who serve in the Minnesota Energy Climate Corps program are enrolled as AmeriCorps members, serving their community through environmental stewardship.

The Minnesota Energy Climate Corps is a new program of Conservation Corps Minnesota & Iowa in partnership with ServeMinnesota and AmeriCorps.
