Arizona Climate Resilience Corps – AmeriCorps
The Arizona Climate Resilience Corps (AZCRC) will help build resilience and address climate issues in Arizona’s communities through environmental education, outreach, and volunteer coordination projects. Members will work with host sites such as public land management agencies, city and county governments, nonprofit organizations, and education institutions to help advance these goals across Arizona. Trainings can be delivered to visitors, recreators, students, homeowners, community organizations, and the general public. Environmental education has been shown to have a breadth of positive impacts, ranging from improved passion and interest in learning to growth in confidence, autonomy, and leadership.
