Interested in developing job readiness skills, experience in project management, and gaining contacts in the field of natural resources? Come learn, live and serve in the beautiful State of Maine! The Maine Conservation Corps (MCC) is devoted to conservation and environmental stewardship across the state, with positions available throughout the year.
As part of the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation & Forestry, the MCC's four-fold mission is to: accomplish conservation projects, create conservation employment, provide conservation education, and engage conservation volunteers.
Environmental Stewards serve individually with non-profits, state or federal agencies to increase organizational volunteer capacity and aid in the development and implementation of host sites land management plans. View a video about one member's AmeriCorps Term at the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge.
Our Field Team Program consists of trail crews that construct and rehabilitate sustainable trails in places like Baxter State Park, and on the Appalachian Trail, as well as land owned by local communities and land trusts.
The MCC receives AmeriCorps funding from the Corporation for National and Community Service via the Maine Commission for Community Service. During their terms of service our members receive a weekly living allowance, health insurance if eligible (6 month or longer term commitment), a Maine State Park pass, First Aid/CPR training, pro deals on gear, and are able to earn AmeriCorps Education Awards to pay for college or student loans.
Unemployed or underemployed youth and military veterans are encouraged to apply!
This program is available to all, without regard to race, color, national origin, disability, age, sex, political affiliation, or religion.
