Executive Summary

Thirty-seven AmeriCorps members will recruit 100 student and community member volunteers to contribute 500 additional hours of service to energy efficiency efforts Dane County, the Greater Milwaukee Area, Winnebago County, Eau Claire County and Portage County. Members will serve as "Energy Efficiency Ambassadors" in their local communities to identify individuals and neighborhoods that can benefit from local, state, and national energy efficiency initiatives, and to provide basic education, assessment, and weatherization services to populations that are not reached by existing capacity. At the end of the the program year, from August 15, 2012 - August 14, 2013, the program will provide energy education to over 5,000 K-12 and college students, reach out to 5,000 community members, conduct 1,000 energy surveys, recruit 100 volunteers to contribute 500 hours of service. This project will focus on the CNCS focus areas of Environmental Stewardship. The CNCS investment of $136,046 will be matched with $42,597.
