The majority of the positions we offer are 11-month AmeriCorps crew positions, in which members serve on five-member crews led by a supervisor. We also provide 15 eleven-month Individual Placement AmeriCorps positions, in which members serve individually with natural resource organizations across the state.
There are limited six-month and three-month crew positions offered in spring and summer. Our members are young adults (18-25*) and those with military service. They receive formal and informal learning experiences during their term of service. In exchange for their service, members earn a living allowance and an AmeriCorps scholarship to use for pursuing education or paying off existing student loans. *Exemptions apply to this age restriction. Learn more about eligibility.
Our crews and individual placements complete projects for our partners that include a diverse network of more than 100 federal, local, state, and non-profit organizations. National forests, national parks, conservation districts, state and local natural resource agencies, tribes, and other entities work in partnership with WCC to accomplish projects for public and ecological benefit such as recreational upgrades, environmental restoration, and enhancement projects. Our AmeriCorps members also engage in disaster response as needed, both nationally and locally.
The WCC consists of three subprograms: Our original Corps Program, the Veteran Conservation Corps, and the Puget SoundCorps.
As a WCC crew supervisor you will lead young adults in a field crew setting, promoting a strong work ethic, positive attitude, and a commitment to service while accomplishing high-quality environmental projects. Learn more about becoming a WCC crew supervisor
