New Ways to Serve Maine
Coming soon! We're excited to be leading the charge behind the creation of two new service corps, the Maine Service Fellows and the Maine Climate Corps.
The Maine Service Fellows program is a Maine-run service corps that will initially be tasked to help small, rural communities recover from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Maine Climate Corps will be charged with tackling climate-related issues as outlined in Gov. Janet Mills' "Maine Can't Wait" climate plan.
