Energy Navigators commit to a year-long program from April 2019-February 2020 that includes a period of training, followed by supervised outreach and education with community members. Volunteers are expected to give at least 50 hours of their time over the course of the year to related 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, April 10th, 2019 from 6-8:15 pm, and meet the subsequent Wednesdays at the same time. After the training, monthly gatherings will be held to support Navigator outreach activities, and share additional information.
