Opportunity for USA young adults to gain work experience in the field of environmental stewardship. The program provides training, networking, and leadership opportunities. Funding is intended to support a wide range of programs and projects related to the environment including energy conservation, environmental education, restoration, forestry, and community engagement. Corps Members will be placed with nonprofit organizations and government agencies throughout Maryland and the Chesapeake Bay.
Each year, the Chesapeake Conservation Corps Program places young adults (ages 18-25) with nonprofit or government agencies to work full-time in the environmental field for a one-year term of paid service in the Chesapeake Bay region. The Corps Members receive hands-on green job and leadership experience through on-the-ground experience leading and assisting with projects and programs for their host sites, extensive trainings hosted by the Trust and other service-learning opportunities including grant writing and project management.
Corps Members also develop meaningful connections and friendships with each other creating a network of young environmental professionals that is a powerful resource even after the yearlong term. Ultimately the Corps Program aims to empower young professionals to take action and make impactful change as leaders and experts in their respective career fields.
The purpose of the Corps Program is two-fold: The first is to enable stipend Corps Members to work with Host Organizations and communities to implement a wide variety of environmental projects and programs including those in the fields of restoration, environmental education, forestry, sustainable agriculture, energy conservation, and community engagement. The second is to provide leadership and training opportunities for young adults who may pursue environmental and conservation careers.
