The Student Conservation Association seeks applicants to mentor and inspire young adults for conservation Corps Teams across the US. Project leaders supervise a crew of 3-5 members aged 18 to 30. Corps Teams work with multiple state and federal partners in both front and back country settings. Work projects are a mix of trail construction and maintenance, invasive species removal, and fuels reduction for wildfire management. Project leaders coordinate with agency partners to plan and implement projects, and with SCA staff to manage crew safety, performance, and logistics in the field. Typically, work hitches involve living and working with the crew for the duration of the season.
