What Other
Frontliners Say

Geography Student,

“My summer with Frontline connected me to projects that helped to reduce flooding in Norfolk and Newport News.
I inspected and rated a few hundred storm drains and worked on analyzing rainfall data with Python.”

Crew Lead,
Frontline Gig

“ I saw an ad on Craig's List and came out to work on a paid park clean up gig. After signing up on the app, I also found paid training to learn about invasive weeds and their management. I got a pay bump shortly after that and now lead field crews. As I lead crews, Frontline Gig is also helping me get ready for community college.”

High School Student,
James Madison University

“I spent my Maymester with Frontline Gig. I'm inspired. After college, I hope to give back by finding solutions to current-day challenges that are technically sound, environmentally friendly and morally right.”

Freelancer and Volunteer,

“I'm retired and love working outdoors. Frontline's park gigs provide a nice way for me to make some extra money and meet new people. I provide food for the homeless when I'm not working on gigs.”

Find a Climate Corps Program to build your network and stand out.

Do Your Homework

Climate Corps and Service Year Programs are public service apprenticeships typically lasting 10 to 12 months. A coordinating entity with a budget curates NGO, municipal and private sector organizations with open positions to provide work and learning opportunities over the apprenticeship period. All the leg work and initial research is done. Just like that. This approach makes it easy for you to identify the organizations in your city that are willing to give entry-level talent a chance.  Pay typically starts at $15 per hour or $600 per week.

Be Proactive

Once you identify a Climate Corps or Service Year type of program in your city,  the real work begins. You will need to sharpen your communication and leadership skills. Brush up on essay writing if it's been a minute since you wrote more that a few lines of text.  Then, if you advance to yet another step in the application process, you will need to ensure you can tell your story and explain to the potential host why you are a great fit. Here are a few tips...

Find the Right Fit

Remember, you are joining these programs to build new skills and grow your network. Be sure to ask your potential host what kind of experiences you can expect. You want a great mix of meaningful work and opportunities to meet your cohort - the most important network. The Corps program should also provide opportunities for you to learn more about what your peers are working on. This is how you build your knowledge of the range of roles that are open to you in the future.
