Do you have an unmet environmental need in your community and would you enjoy supervising an AmeriCorps member to meet that need? The Palouse-Clearwater Environmental Institute AmeriCorps Program seeks organizations that would like to host an AmeriCorps member to complete a project in the areas of environmental education and stewardship and on-the-ground restoration.
We are beginning our search for organizations located in Idaho that would like to host an AmeriCorps Member for the 2019-20 service term. Click here for more information or contact Joan Hofmann, AmeriCorps Placement Coordinator. We are looking for organizations that will complete projects with their members that address the needs we’ve identified above and in the application materials and can adequately report on progress in those areas.
Please find the 2019-2020 Sponsor application here.
