Description

Looking to launch your environmental career? Young professionals can gain vital green jobs experience, skills, and build a network of connections in the environmental field through the Chesapeake Conservation Corps program.

This one-year term of paid service places young adults with nonprofits or government agencies to work full-time in the environmental field in the Chesapeake watershed. Throughout the year this program provides hands-on professional and leadership experience through on-the-ground work leading and assisting with projects and programs, extensive trainings, and other service-learning opportunities including grant writing.
The purpose of the Corps Program is 1) to enable young adults to work with organizations and communities on issues impacting the Chesapeake Bay, and 2) to better prepare young adults pursuing careers in the environmental field. Corps Members will work on projects and programs that fall into at least one of six categories (environmental restoration, community engagement, environmental education, energy conservation, sustainable agriculture or forestry), gain career and leadership skills, and become more engaged through meaningful community service.

The Chesapeake Bay Trust anticipates placing around 35-40 Corps Members, young adults 18-25, with nonprofit organizations and government agencies throughout the Chesapeake Bay region for a paid year of service ($18,500) beginning on August 20, 2019. To find the application go to https://cbtrust.org/prospective/. Applications must be submitted by March 14, 2019 at 4:00 pm.
