Join us for our 2022 Climate Corps- Energy & Water Conservation program! The Energy & Water Conservation program (E&W) is a team-based, 26 or 34 week-long program for individuals between the ages 18-24. E&W participants (called Corpsmembers) serve on community-based energy and water conservation projects throughout the Denver metro area. Corpsmembers will be enrolled in AmeriCorps—a national community service program.

Corpsmembers will earn up to $17,470 for a 26-week term, or $23,690 for a 34-week term.
