ABOUT CONFLUENCE AMERICORPS
Confluence Environmental Center's AmeriCorps Program catalyzes environmental justice in the Portland area by working with community Partners to develop 11-month long AmeriCorps positions that address critical environmental needs in low-income communities and communities of color.
Confluence AmeriCorps offers Members the chance to serve the community while gaining valuable skills and experience in the environmental justice field. We develop environmental leaders to address the issues of today and prepare for the concerns of tomorrow.
