CASM Climate Corps Apprenticeship 2018 — Apply Now!

CASM Climate Corps Apprenticeship 2018 — Apply Now!
“Exercising my ‘reasoned judgment,’ I have no doubt that the right to a climate system capable of sustaining human life is fundamental to a free and ordered society.” U.S. District Judge Ann Aiken, Juliana v. U.S. (Our Children’s Trust Climate Lawsuit)
 
Climate Action Santa Monica invites high school and college students to apply for the CASM Climate Corps Apprenticeship 2018 program.  
Do you know a young person ready to take initiative to be a bright face of the future and an engaging presence for a safe climate and true sustainability? This summer, the CASM Climate Corps 2018 Apprenticeship is open to high school and college students committed to caring for the biosphere and helping to create a resilient community.   Different from an internship, we are emphasizing ongoing learning experiences to enhance individual pursuits and imaginative teamwork, so that each Climate Corps Apprentice will communicate with diverse people living, studying, working or visiting in Santa Monica about the impact of climate change on our lives, showcasing actions that each person, family, neighborhood or group can take and sharing available Santa Monica, regional or state resources. 
If you are willing to challenge yourself and energize your thinking and talents to be a part of the CASM Climate Corps 2018, please submit an application.  Early bird deadline is Wednesday, June 6, at 6 p.m. (Pacific Time).  Deadline is Friday, June 8, at 6 p.m. (Pacific Time).
 
Interviews will be conducted on Saturday, June 9 and Sunday, June 10, unless otherwise arranged for those with special circumstances.
 
Partnering with the City of Santa Monica and others, in two years, the Climate Corps has garnered much attention and appreciation.  As Santa Monica City Manager Rick Cole has attested, investing in the Climate Corps, is “probably the most cost-effective use of taxpayers funds that you will find anywhere in Southern California because this was fueled by more than the stipends that the participants received. It was fueled by their youthful passion and belief in a cause much bigger than themselves.  I’ve been inspired by their talents, their caring.”
Year three promises to be inspirational in powerful, joyful ways.  Apply!
