Description:

Maine Conservation Corps (MCC) is seeking a videographer and video editor(s) who can create a few short film projects to help us in our marketing and recruitment endeavors.

MCC is an AmeriCorps program providing opportunities for people to get outdoors and be part of the greater good. Our mission is to accomplish conservation initiatives that inspire people and enhance communities, and that's what weve been doing since our establishment in 1983.

Every year we place almost 100 individuals throughout the entire state of Maine to conserve and protect our natural resources. They participate in trail maintenance and erosion control, water quality and wildlife monitoring, invasive plant removal, outdoor education and outreach, and so much more.

On top of this, we provide people with an opportunity to learn valuable life skills, gain confidence, and become lifelong advocates of the environment.

We need your help to spread the word about the awesome things we are getting done!
