AmeriCorps Service Member Opportunities with TerraCorps 

Note: Positions provide stipend and additional benefits

 

Whether you are passionate about conservation, land access, or sustainable agriculture, TerraCorps is here to help you serve local communities and build professional skills through transformative experiences.

TerraCorps is an AmeriCorps affiliated environmental nonprofit preparing and mobilizing emerging leaders to help communities gain access to and conserve land for people and nature. We do this by partnering with a network of 40+ nonprofits in Massachusetts and Rhode Island focused on community needs related to local land conservation and sustainable agriculture. These partners act as service sites for a new cohort of up to 60 AmeriCorps service members annually. Service members are paired with a site supervisor who provides guidance and mentorship while they learn to manage community programs and projects over an 11-month, 1700-hour service term.


Members serve in one of five coordinator roles focused on:

· Land Conservation

· Land Stewardship

· Sustainable Agriculture

· Community Engagement

· Youth Education


Members serve in full-time (38 hour/week), 11-month positions from August 26th, 2024- July 25th, 2025. These AmeriCorps positions receive a living allowance, health insurance, money for college ($7,395), and additional AmeriCorps benefits.

Applications for this position must be submitted via the TerraCorps online application. Position descriptions and application specifics can be found at https://terracorps.my.site.com/terracorps/s/available-member-positions
