  • About Us
    The Confluence AmeriCorps Program advances environmental equity by partnering with community-based organizations, public schools, and government agencies who value social and environmental justice. Our partners and the AmeriCorps Members who are placed with them create greater access to healthy foods, green spaces, clean waterways, community gardens, outdoor experiences, energy efficient homes and transportation. Confluence AmeriCorps Members build leadership skills while increasing the organization’s capacity to serve and empower racially, ethnically and socioeconomically diverse populations.

    80% of the AmeriCorps Members time (32 hours per week) is dedicated to their service project and 20% of their time (8 hours per/week) is dedicated to Confluence's Leadership Program consisting of trainings, monthly meetings, service days and an independent CAP project. Members may also use this time to advance professional and educational goals and skills.
  • Our Impact
    Confluence operates at the intersection of environmental and social justice. Our primary goals include:

    ~Diversify the environmental movement’s leadership
    ~Provide environmental services and resources to historically marginalized youth and community members
    ~Expand the capacity of schools and organizations to advance and sustain environmental justice
