Washington Climate Corps Network


The Washington Climate Corps Network (WCCN) is a network of organizations, young adults, veterans, and professionals working together to build a climate resilient Washington. Serve Washington coordinates this network to conduct service projects building climate resilient communities, economies, and ecosystems. 

Serve Washington prioritizes service to overburdened communities where people face disproportionate environmental harms and risks and are often disproportionately comprised of vulnerable populations. 

Serve WA partners with local organizations, municipalities, and schools to implement climate service projects for young adults, veterans, and vulnerable populations to address local climate needs while building skills and resources for future careers. Serve Washington supports the WCCN through funding service projects to achieve the goals of the network. Serve Washington also provides a service-learning program and coordinates with agencies and resources to achieve Washington state climate goals.

The WCCN will achieve the following goals:  
  • Increase participation in addressing climate challenges in overburdened communities. 
  • Expand the diversity, awareness, and accessibility of climate service opportunities in Washington. 
  • Create a service-learning program for funded network partners and their members. 
    • The service-learning program will increase awareness of and access to clean energy and climate-related career opportunities and networks. 

You are encouraged to propose a project which addresses the goals of the WCCN and addresses issues stemming from the effects of climate change in Washington.  

If you have a service project, we want to hear from you!  

Some examples of service projects include:  

  • Mitigation Projects 
    • Supporting sea-level rise management and response 
    • Addressing wildfire risks in forest lands 
  • Adaptation Projects 
    • Creating green spaces in cities, "urban greening" 
    • Restoring coastal vegetation to minimize erosion 
  • Innovation Projects 
    • Improving Agribusiness waste management practices 
    • Developing Clean energy technologies
