We're Hiring! AmeriCorps 2019-2020


Clark County Green Schools is hiring! The application for our 2019-2020 AmeriCorps position is now open. We are looking for an enthusiastic and hardworking individual to join our team as an outreach coordinator. 

As the current AmeriCorps, I help schools all over Clark County with waste reduction and other environmental efforts. Every day I am interacting with students and staff to see how we can better take care of our environment. This ranges from daily school visits to teaching lessons, supporting Green Team projects, helping with waste audits, and putting on large community events. It is a dynamic and rewarding position. I'm gaining professional skills while also feeling good about my contribution to the community. In addition to invaluable service experience, AmeriCorps provides an educational scholarship, living stipend, health insurance, job training, and an extensive support network. If you are interested in advancing your career while helping students become environmental stewards, consider applying to be the next Green Schools AmeriCorps.

"The best part of this position is that I get to serve with our amazing Green Schools team! It's easy to come to the office every day when I get to collaborate with great people on projects that better my community."

"Being my first career milestone after college, my AmeriCorps position serving with Clark County Green Schools was definitely an enriching and worthwhile experience. I was given ample opportunities to develop my skills in environmental outreach and communication, as well as firsthand exposure working for local government. I highly recommend this position for anyone who is looking to develop interpersonal and public communication skills, as well as learning more about local solid waste programs and resource use policy."
