National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) partners with non-profit organizations, schools and public agencies in Montana to host Energy Corps AmeriCorps members. The Energy Corps addresses unmet community energy needs by promoting sustainable energy consumption and education, fostering community sustainability and helping to mitigate the effects of global climate change. The program provides organizations and agencies involved in sustainable energy projects with highly qualified individuals for a one-year term of AmeriCorps service. These members will be an advantage to both your organization and to the communities in which they will be serving.
Serving as an Energy Corps host site provides a unique opportunity to improve organizational and community capacity to address our nation’s energy needs. The Energy Corps also provides members with hands-on training and skills development to pursue a career in a green-collar workforce capable of meeting the needs of the future in an emerging green economy.
