Minnesota GreenCorps member application

Loading Events

Minnesota GreenCorps is now accepting applications for 58 full-time AmeriCorps members! Positions are available with governments, nonprofit organizations, and educational institutions statewide. Members earn an AmeriCorps living stipend and education award and serve full-time for 11 months, from mid-September 2024 through August 2025.

The American Lung Association/Minnesota Clean Cities Coalition is excited to host a Minnesota GreenCorps member for the upcoming service term out of our Saint Paul office. Our member will serve in the Energy Conservation & Green Transportation topic area, and their project will focus on reducing emissions and vehicle miles traveled by promoting green transportation options such as shared and electric vehicle mobility, electric vehicles (EVs), and other alternative fuels. Specific member activities include:

-Promoting shared and electric mobility as part of a new clean transportation action plan, gathering additional information on electric mobility and alternate forms of transportation, and attending community outreach events to share resources to reduce vehicle miles traveled.

-Promoting electric school buses by contacting district transportation directors, hosting webinars, creating content for the Clean Air Choice website, and attending related conferences to network and promote opportunities.

-Managing two electric mobility ride-and-drive events, coordinating EV owner volunteers, recruiting dealerships and vendors, developing a map and route for test drives, collecting pre- and post-surveys from participants, and compiling a report.

-Developing communications materials such as social media, editorials, and e-newsletters.

Applicants may indicate their interest in serving with the Lung Association in their application and interview. While placement with us is not guaranteed, the MPCA places candidates with the host site that best aligns with their geographic preference, specific position interest, and skills.

Please forward this opportunity to anyone who may be interested in applying and contact Shelby Gamache (shelby.gamache@lung.org) with any questions about our Minnesota GreenCorps member position. Applications are due Thursday, June 13, 2024, via the State of Minnesota Careers website.
