TerraCorps is an innovative national service program that prepares and mobilizes emerging leaders to help communities conserve and secure land for the health and well-being of people and nature. We do this by supporting AmeriCorps members who serve with nonprofit organizations across the state to tackle issues around land access, urban agriculture, and conservation. This year we are looking for 48 members to join the TerraCorps team!
As a member you can serve with one of our nonprofit partners, in one of five coordinator positions: Community Engagement Coordinator, Youth Education Coordinator, Land Stewardship Coordinator, Regional Collaboration Coordinator, and Urban Agriculture Coordinator.
Regional Collaboration Coordinators (RCC) build the long-term capacity of their Service Sites by assessing community needs related to land conservation and land access and then organizing collaborative community projects to help meet these needs. By educating, community members and partner organizations, RCCs empower diverse people to create healthy, vibrant communities.
Members serve in full-time (38 hour/week), 11-month positions from August 26th, 2019- July 24th, 2020.
