Creating civic engagement and the political will for climate solutions takes hard work, dedication, funding and very importantly: VOLUNTEERS.
The League is driven by volunteers. We have dozens of volunteers with many skills. Whether spending a few hours writing a letter to the Editor or spending several days in Washington, DC talking with our Members of Congress we love bringing together advocates, donors, students, and community and business leaders to make Arkansas a leader in the effort to protect the climate.
Within ARKCCL there are many opportunities to volunteer. Additionally we have a number of specific job descriptions for student interns. Are you a student who has completed coursework in subjects such as marketing, creative writing, social media, journalism, accounting, event planning, policy, environmental education or have other skills you want to develop? If you are looking for an encouraging outlet to apply your coursework and gain valuable work experience for your resume, please checkout our ads on Handshake or contact Kim Lovely at info@ARKCCL.org for information. We enjoy working with students and greatly appreciate the reciprocal outcomes of working with students on projects that involve creativity, focus and exploration.
“I am a Council Member for Gould City. In Gould we are seeing more and more heavy rains. This is impacting existing drainage problems and making them worse. Some of our streets flood and so do people’s yards. I am worried that homes could flood. Getting our ditches and canal cleared out is a priority, and we are working with the Army Corps of Engineers about this. Some of our Gould residents, including myself, are paying more for homeowners insurance because of the increased threat of flooding in the region.”
