CAC AmeriCorps’ Environmental program will engage 34 members, between the ages of 18-25, in projects focusing on environmental education, capacity building and improving public lands through a variety of administrative and technical interventions.  Our longest running program, CAC AmeriCorps’ Environmental Corps has been in operation since 1994.

AmeriCorps_TENNESSEE no background

Corps members work to build capacity in our partner organizations and provide environmental education and physical improvements to public lands, trails and waterways to clean, protect and restore environmental conditions in our community.  In addition, members receive specialized training allowing them to be deployed in response to national disaster declarations.

CAC AmeriCorps Environmental members will serve 1,700 hours over 47 weeks between August 6th, 2018 and June 29th, 2019 and will receive a living allowance of $12,530 over the course of their year of service.  Upon completion, CAC AmeriCorps Environmental members will receive an education award of $5,920.
