Energy Corps Member
Home ReSource, Missoula, Missoula, MT.

Home ReSource is a building materials reuse center in Missoula that is committed to reducing waste and building a vibrant and sustainable local economy. As a triple-bottom-line nonprofit business, we bring environmental, social, and economic benefits to the community through our retail store and Deconstruction Services as well as our Community Sustainability Programs. Those programs provide educational activities, community Zero Waste support, job skills training, and volunteer opportunities to community members and material donations to school, churches, and organizations. In February 2016, Missoula City Council passed the Missoula Zero Waste Resolution, which set a goal of reducing the community’s solid waste stream by 90% by 2050 and directed City staff to facilitate the development of a Zero Waste Plan. This epic achievement is a mandate for our community to become more aware of waste and how to reduce it and provides rich opportunities for our next Energy Corps service member to gain valuable experience in community zero waste planning, strategic partnership development, facilitation, outreach, and education.

Energy Corps Member
Sustainability Educator, Missoula County, Missoula, MT

Starts in October 2016

In June 2016, Missoula County adopted a new growth policy which sets the following goal: Reduce Missoula County’s contribution to climate change while promoting resiliency and adapting to its impact on the natural environment and communities. The growth policy further delineates a number of objectives including the convening of a working group to investigate the current level of greenhouse gas emissions generated from county facilities and develop a climate change monitoring, mitigation, and adaptation plan for Missoula County or participate in other local working groups. An Energy Corps member is desired to play a lead role in jump-starting the county’s climate action program. As an initial step, we would like to work with an Energy Corps member to help establish a method to complete a greenhouse gas emissions assessment for the county and complete the baseline inventory. (70-80%) This work will provide a framework for successive emissions assessments that can be used to track progress once we complete and start to implement an energy and climate action plan. We will be able to collaborate with the City of Missoula and learn from their initial assessment. In addition to the greenhouse gas inventory, we anticipate that an Energy Corps member can help us build capacity with his/her participation in activities described in the full description.
