GAVCC engages individuals in positions with federal, state and local land management agencies and environmentally focused non-profits. Individual placements (interns) are paired with a local supervisors and these positions offer more technical, hands-on experience in the work of these organizations or agencies and many times provide the training necessary to secure long term employment in these fields. Participants are paid a weekly stipend but are typically responsible for their own room and board. Applicants must be over 18 years of age. Start dates are varied and applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
