The National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) is currently seeking non-profit organizations, schools and public agencies in Arkansas to host Energy Corps AmeriCorps members for the 2012-2013 program year. The Energy Corps addresses unmet community energy needs by promoting sustainable energy consumption and education, fostering community sustainability and helping to mitigate the effects of global climate change. The program provides organizations and agencies involved in sustainable energy projects with highly qualified individuals for a one-year term of AmeriCorps service. These members will be an advantage to both your organization and to the communities in which they will be serving.
Serving as an Energy Corps host site provides a unique opportunity to improve organizational and community capacity to address our nation’s energy needs. The Energy Corps also provides members with hands-on training and skills development to pursue a career in a green-collar workforce capable of meeting the needs of the future in an emerging green economy.
If your organization is interested in hosting Energy Corps members, please review and complete the application by August 15, 2012.
