Addressing community needs to the changing climate


What is Grizzlycorps?

GrizzlyCorps is a AmeriCorps fellowship launched in 2020 designed by Project Climate at UC Berkeley’s Center for Law, Energy & the Environment in partnership with CaliforniaVolunteers. Our program sends recent college graduates into rural communities across California to promote regenerative agri-food systems and fire and forest resilience.

“GrizzlyCorps was an incredible experience that deepened my understanding of the on-the-ground challenges many farmers face in practicing regenerative agriculture, all while illuminating some of the practical solutions public/private agencies and policymakers can prioritize to remedy these challenges. The GrizzlyCorps program staff was supportive each step of the way, and I feel really lucky to have grown - both personally and professionally - alongside my fellow GrizzlyCorps cohort.”

“The GrizzlyCorps community has been an unwavering source of support and inspiration as I have transitioned from college into the workforce. The relationships and knowledge developed during this fellowship have deepened my commitment to being a part of the movement building a resilient, justice-oriented, ecologically vibrant climate future.”

“I believe what I am most proud of is the amount of knowledge I was able to grasp in such a short amount of time. It was not until Hopland last September that I even knew there were different kinds of oaks so I have definitely learned a lot. GrizzlyCorps and their training, flexibility and desire to help has allowed me to say yes to opportunities I couldn't imagine a year ago and allow me to explore what I want to do with my life. GrizzlyCorps has always supported me no matter what but I believe the best has been their support for me to start a second fellowship while still being in the GrizzlyCorps organization.”
