Chemung Energy Navigator Volunteer Application
Energy Navigators are concerned and capable residents who help their friends, neighbors and other community members learn about ways they can reduce their energy use and energy bills and use renewable forms of energy to heat and power their homes. They also try to lead by example!

Energy Navigators commit to a six month program that includes a period of training, followed by outreach and education with community members. Volunteers are expected to give at least 20 hours of training, and 30 hours of their time related to outreach activities, and help at least ten of their contacts with energy-related actions (please read the Volunteer Job Description for more information on expectations).

Energy Navigator trainee selection is based on an applicant’s ability to attend the training sessions, and their capacity and interest in helping others. Preference is given to volunteers who are connected to diverse populations in rural and urban areas.

The 10-session Energy Navigator Training will begin on Wednesday, July 29th, 2020 from 7:00 - 8:15 pm online. After the training, monthly, virtual gatherings will be held to support Navigator outreach activities, and share additional information.

Application Deadline: Friday, July 10th 2020.
