AmeriCorps Member Request

AmeriCorps members with Climate Impact Corps provide capacity-building services to sites as Climate Impact Project Coordinators. Climate Impact Project Coordinators support climate-related projects at their sites and build the capacity of sites to increase their reach, effectiveness, and/or efficiency. 
Sites indicate their specific requests for climate-related projects for AmeriCorps member support in the grid below. Once awarded, sites complete a pre- and post-capacity assessment that aligns with the Minnesota Climate Action Framework. Additionally, sites and members develop a unique service plan at the beginning of the service term to outline how the member(s) will support their site. 
Indicate the commitment levels of Climate Impact Project Coordinators requested by your organization. We consider organizational requests as well as candidate availability when placing members. *
Climate Impact Project Coordinators provide capacity building services to support sites in implementing the Minnesota Climate Action Framework and/or Tribal Nation Cimate Action Framework. Please indicate the climate priority area(s) for which you are requesting Climate Impact Corps member(s) to support below. 

For the climate priority areas listed in each row, indicate the capacity building domain(s) in each column that you anticipate the member(s) supporting. If you do not anticipate member(s) supporting a particular climate priority area, please select "N/A" in the righthand column for that row. 

The information collected here helps Climate Impact Corps understand how your site envisions AmeriCorps member service enhancing your capacity. This informs our site selection and member placement processes, assists us in creating member training plans, and also provides valuable insights for members to develop effective service plans. 

For complete definitions and examples of each capacity building domain and climate priority area, please refer to this Climate Impact Corps Definitions and Examples document*
