Minnesota GreenCorps members serve approximately 40 hours a week for 11 months, from mid-September through mid-August, at environmental nonprofits, government agencies, or educational institutions throughout the state.
Members earn a living stipend of up to $1,428 per month and an education award of $6,195 after the successful completion of the AmeriCorps term, which may be used for education expenses or to repay qualified student loans.
Each member will serve on a project in one of four focus areas:
- Air pollutant reduction (energy conservation, green transportation)
- Community readiness and outreach (public engagement, education, volunteer mobilization)
- Green infrastructure improvements (stormwater management, urban forestry)
- Waste reduction, recycling, and organics management (food waste prevention, recycling, composting)
Members receive training from the MPCA on a quarterly basis, including a 3-day orientation at the beginning of the service term. Additionally, members are paired with a mentor whose role is to provide support and resources throughout the service year.
