Who We Are
The first-ever Resilience Corps, a partnership between GPCOG and AmeriCorps, supports local government agencies, nonprofit agencies and regional cohorts in the Greater Portland area in their recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. Fourteen Resilience Corps members assist projects related to regional, community or organizational resilience and help to accelerate civic innovation, climate action, racial equity and digital equity for all Mainers.
The Greater Portland Resilience Corps adds new capacity in local governments to adapt and proactively respond to both short-term and long-term challenges to economic, social and environmental systems throughout the region.
Resilience Corps Programming
Corps members offer direct service to local government entities or small regional cohorts to address regional projects. They receive professional and workforce development as a cohort in data collection, analysis and visualization, and they participate in AmeriCorps National Days of Service.
