Energy & Water Conservation

This is a year-long program during which Corpsmembers install FREE energy and water efficiency devices in low-income households and nonprofit facilities. The program offers leadership development, a chance to work with a diverse crew, an opportunity to give back to the community and support to Corpsmembers as they work towards the next steps in their careers and education.

Corpsmembers install compact fluorescent light bulbs, aerators, programmable thermostats, low-flow showerheads and high-efficiency toilets. They also receive training on how to educate residents and community members on the environmental and financial benefits of conservation.

Participants have the opportunity to earn an AmeriCorps Education Awards towards their post-secondary education. This program is currently available in Denver. Check out our current Corpsmember positions here. We are accepting applications now!
