Opportunities with Minnesota GreenCorps

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency is accepting MN GreenCorps member applications for the 2024-2025 program year!

Minnesota GreenCorps, an AmeriCorps program coordinated by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, is seeking motivated, service-minded individuals to improve the environment and strengthen communities throughout the state. MN GreenCorps members serve with government entities, non-profit organizations, and educational institutions to carry out service projects in areas of stormwater and forestry, energy conservation and green transportation, community readiness and outreach, and waste reduction and recycling.

Priority was given to host sites and projects that engage with, focus on, or serve environmental justice (EJ) areas per the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency's EJ story map. In the 2024-2025 program year, over 85% of host sites are based in an EJ area or have an EJ focused initiative. Priority was also given to projects targeting new communities that have not recently received Minnesota GreenCorps assistance, and those that provide opportunities for broader community involvement.

MN GreenCorps is thrilled to be partnering with the following tribal nations and Native American non-profit organization for the 2024-2025 program year:

· Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa

· Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe

· Migizi Communications

In addition to receiving training, developing job skills, and gaining professional experience, members earn a living allowance of $1,150 (pre-tax) paid every two weeks, health insurance, student loan forbearance, and an education award of $7,395. Visit the MPCA's Minnesota GreenCorps webpage to learn more and apply by June 13!
