About CivicSpark

CivicSpark is an award-winning and evidence-based AmeriCorps program, powered by CivicWell, that builds local government and community capacity to address resilience challenges such as climate change, water resource management, affordable housing, and mobility. During the 11-month service year, CivicSpark Fellows complete research, planning, or implementation projects that support public agencies in advancing their resilience initiatives.

Since 2014, over 1,000 CivicSpark Fellows have provided more than one million hours of service. Over 95% of completed projects have met or exceeded expectations. CivicSpark provides both a workforce pipeline and a professional launchpad for Fellows, 73% of whom continue to work in the public sector.
