Mission Statement

A community-based organization empowering community voices to implement equitable climate solutions for unity, resilience, and justice

Engagement Opportunities

- Volunteer with Climate Resilient Communities. You can either sign up as a general volunteer or apply to volunteer for a specific program. CRC's most popular programs include the Rain Garden Project and Earthwise Kids.
- Join the CRC Youth Climate Collective. In this paid, bimonthly program across 6 months, youth (East Palo Alto, North Fair Oaks, and Belle Haven youth especially encouraged) take part in interactive field trips, advocacy workshops, and environmental justice education. Students will be connected with mentorship and internship opportunities to further pursue climate advocacy once the program concludes.
- Students are also more than encouraged to join their local Climate Change Community Teams (CCCTs). Joining your local CCCT is an amazing way to get involved in the organization and connect with local residents, city officials, and business leaders. They currently have teams in East Palo Alto, North Fair Oaks, and the Belle Haven neighborhood of Menlo Park, and are expanding to new frontline communities throughout the bay area.


What They Do

Climate Resilient Communities primarily works in Belle Haven (Menlo Park), East Palo Alto, and North Fair Oaks to uplift the Peninsula’s underrepresented communities. Their organization consists of three programs: Resilient Adaptation, and Resilient Education. Through their outreach, CRC cultivates environmental awareness while giving local residents a voice in proactive resilience planning and adaptation.
