Eastside Conservation Corps

The City of Bellevue is recruiting for the Eastside Conservation Corps and we want YOU!

What is the ECC?

City of Bellevue is recruiting students to join the Eastside Conservation Corps (ECC) - a new organization founded for the purpose of supporting the City’s efforts in environmental sustainability. The ECC will engage high school students in lifelong learning exercises associated with environmental stewardship and the energy efficiency industry, while increasing the uptake of energy efficiency behaviors throughout Bellevue's residential homes and neighborhoods. ECC members will be the brains and voice behind Bellevue's campaign—encouraging participation at the household and school level by developing outreach materials, reward structures, education pieces, and other creative approaches to completing the task at hand. ECC participation may help students fulfill community service commitments, leadership opportunities and senior projects.

Why?

The ECC will help Bellevue achieve its goal of helping local high school students develop career skills in clean energy, environmental conservation, communications, and leadership in support of bettering the community and making Bellevue more energy and environmentally conscious.

As involved students, YOU are fundamental to this community engagement message.
