Build your path to the future!
Our Washington Conservation Corps (WCC) is your chance to gain hands-on experience in the environmental field. As an AmeriCorps program, we create future leaders through community involvement and mentorship. We have more than 350 members and experienced staff statewide who restore critical habitat, build trails, and respond to local and national disasters.
The majority of our AmeriCorps member positions are 11-month crew positions, in which members serve on crews of five members led by a WCC crew supervisor. There are limited 6-month and 3-month positions offered in spring and summer. We also provide 18 Individual Placement positions that are typically limited to 11-month positions only. All members earn a bi-weekly living allowance equivalent to Washington's minimum wage, and an AmeriCorps Education Award upon successfully completing a term.
