Program information

The Minnesota GreenCorps program year begins in mid- to late September and operates through August. MPCA plans to place up to 42 full-time members with host sites throughout Minnesota Members serve approximately 40 hours a week for 11 months.

Each member will serve on a project in one of four focus areas:

  • Air pollutant reduction
  • Waste reduction, recycling, and organics management
  • Green infrastructure improvements
  • Community readiness and outreach

Each focus area is led by an expert in the field. This topic lead also serves as a resource for members and host sites throughout the service year.

Members receive training from the MPCA on a quarterly basis, including a 3-day orientation at the beginning of the year. Additionally, members are paired with a mentor whose role is to provide support and resources throughout the service year.

Operation of the 2018-2019 program year is contingent on receiving funds. Confirmation of funding may not be available prior to the application deadline.
