Program information

Minnesota GreenCorps members serve approximately 40 hours a week for 11 months. Members earn a living stipend of up to $1,428 per month and an education award of $5,920 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)

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 service term. Additionally, members are paired with a mentor whose role is to provide support and resources throughout the service year.
