Crew Leader Development Program

As an AmeriCorps program, participants work effectively as a member of a crew; perform heavy manual labor related to environmental conservations and restoration projects; work outdoors in all types of weather and successfully adapt to various climates; camp overnight outdoors in wilderness areas or near work sites for short or extended periods of time; effectively learn and apply new environmental conservation and restoration skills and outdoor living skills; actively participate in environmental education activities; practice appropriate safety procedures in all tasks assigned; use, maintain and repair hand and power tools as necessary.   

The goal of the leadership development program is to provide participants with a variety of training focused on hard skills as well as leadership through peer leadership activities to prepare members for leadership roles within the conservation corps setting.  Upon completion of the leadership development program, members are encouraged to apply for crew leader positions.
