TerraCorps/AmeriCorps Opportunities at SVT

Former LSC Lisa Long (center) trained volunteers to use boundary-location tools.

SVT is seeking two TerraCorps/AmeriCorps Members for the 2020-2021 service year. These full-time, 11-month positions provide wonderful experience for anyone interested in a career in land conservation.

TerraCorps is a Massachusetts-based organization that is part of the national AmeriCorps program that annually engages more than 75,000 Americans in service at nonprofit organizations, schools, and public agencies.

TerraCorps oversees AmeriCorps Members who serve in land trusts and agricultural-based organizations in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut. Members receive a living allowance, an education award, and additional benefits. 

TerraCorps/AmeriCorps Members become fully enmeshed in SVT's work and make an important contribution to our success. For example, Matt Morris, currently serving as LSC, has played a key role in SVT's outreach efforts to trail walkers during the COVID-19 crisis and has written about his work in Nature Is an Essential Service

The 2020-2021 service year will run from August 31, 2020, to July 30, 2021. SVT has openings for the following TerraCorps/AmeriCorps Members at our headquarters in Sudbury, MA:

Land Stewardship Coordinator (LSC)

Community Engagement Coordinator (CEC)

These positions will remain open until filled.
