Hello COSA Community!
Mile High Youth Corps is hiring Climate Action Corpsmembers to serve Metro Denver residents by installing in-home energy and water saving measures (low-flow toilets, kitchen and bathroom aerators, programmable thermostats, and LED light bulbs). Corpsmembers will serve in teams of 2-3 to complete daily household appointments using MHYC provided vehicles, toolkits, and materials. They will also educate the community on the importance of climate action and energy and water conservation.
Position description: Join us for our 2023 Community Climate Ambassador Program! The Community Climate Ambassador program is a team-based, 48 week program for individuals between the ages 18-24. Participants (called Climate Action Corpsmembers) serve as community connectors and educate local residents on the issues of climate change, heat vulnerability, and water scarcity. Corpsmembers will be enrolled in AmeriCorps—a national community service program.
Corpsmembers will earn up to $36,255 over a 48 week term of service in total compensation.

We will provide you with hands-on training related to all projects, and skills and certificates that will lead you to a future in green industries.
