GrizzlyCorps Rural Climate Fellow

Website grizzlycorps GrizzlyCorps

GrizzlyCorps is an AmeriCorps program designed by Project Climate at UC Berkeley’s Center for Law, Energy, and the Environment in partnership with CaliforniaVolunteers. Our program sends recent college graduates into rural communities across California to promote regenerative agri-food systems and fire and forest resilience. We aim to expand capacity for organizations, agencies, and Tribes working on community resilience and climate action while bolstering the next generation of professionals at the forefront of climate change solutions.

Each year, GrizzlyCorps sends thirty-five (35) full-time fellows to host sites in forest and farm communities throughout California for 11 months. GrizzlyCorps fellows have been placed with various host partners and organizations, including cooperative extensions, resource conservation districts, Tribes, research stations, state agencies, non-profits, and other community organizations and agencies. Fellows support their host sites through a series of capacity-building projects that aim to improve the impact of their work, build community resilience, and respond to climate change. During their service year, GrizzlyCorps Fellows work on selected projects that promote regenerative agri-food systems and/or fire and forest resilience.
