**THIS LISTING IS FOR APPLICANTS SEEKING TO SERVE AT A NON-RESIDENTIAL CENTER ** If you are not interested in providing your own housing and transportation, please view our Residential listing
The CCC is a one year, full time program that provides individuals aged 18-25 the opportunity to conserve California’s natural resources through hands on service. During their year of service, Corpsmembers work on environmental projects and respond to natural and man-made disasters.
Corpsmembers begin their service with a 1-2 week training before being assigned to a crew and starting their service projects. Corpsmembers make a significant impact on California’s environment through projects focusing on Natural Resource Conservation, Emergency Response and Mitigation, and Energy Conservation. Corpsmembers also have the opportunity to participate in special programs such as Culinary Arts, Wildland Firefighting, Back Country Trails, Australian Exchange Program, Watershed Stewards program, Internships and more.
Corpsmembers may also spend some afternoon and weekend hours working towards other program requirements such as education, professional development, or weekend volunteering. In addition to typical project assignments, Corpsmembers may also serve on remote work projects for up to 8 days away from their center, or emergency response deployments for up to 21 days away from their center.
While serving at a non-residential center, you will need to provide your own housing and reliable transportation. You will be responsible for reporting to your center on time each day (schedule may vary), you will join your crew at the center to travel to your project together in a CCC vehicle. Despite serving at a non-residential center, there will still be times that you are required to be away from your center for emergencies, remote work projects, and training (meals and housing are provided during these times).
**Due to a high influx of interested candidates, we are currently only accepting applications from California residents. We appreciate your interest in the CCC and encourage you to check back with us in the future. We hope to have more openings in the coming months. If you are currently not living in California, but plan on moving to California soon, please let us know so we can connect you with a local Recruiter. You are also welcome to follow our Backcountry Trails program, which will be open to out of state applicants starting late 2018, for their next season.
