In February, the Nevada County Board of Supervisors adopted Climate Resilience as a priority objective to safeguard Nevada County’s economic durability, environmental integrity, and public health and safety by preparing for, adapting to, and mitigating changing climate conditions in a way that reflects our rural quality of life.
In an effort to elevate the County’s work towards climate resilience, Nevada County has been approved and is actively recruiting for a CivicSpark Fellow to work full-time on the county’s climate resilience objective starting in September 2023 for an approximate year-long fellowship.
CivicSpark is currently recruiting Fellows interested in serving with local organizations in California, Washington, and Colorado to address a broad range of resiliency issues. Fellows implement local projects on topics including sustainable transportation, energy efficiency, climate action planning, water conservation, drought response, affordable housing, rural-broadband, equity, and environmental justice. Fellows gain exceptional career experience, and training to become future leaders in response to emerging environmental and social equity challenges. Learn more about CivicSpark by visiting civicspark.civicwell.org.
Approved Fellows are eligible for a number of benefits, including living allowance, and health benefits, amongst others.
Deadlines to apply are:
- Priority Deadline – May 12th
- Regular Deadline – June 9th
- Late Deadline* – July 14th
