Become a WCC crew supervisor
Are you looking for an exciting opportunity to work outdoors and help preserve and enhance Washington’s environment? Then this job is for you!
Our Washington Conservation Corps (WCC) crew supervisors mentor a crew of five AmeriCorps members (young adults and military veterans) as they develop environmental field skills in a team setting. In exchange, our supervisors develop their own skills through a variety of certifications such as Hazwoper, Pesticide Applicator, Wildland Firefighting, and Wilderness First Responder, along with opportunities in leadership and project management.
If you have strong communication skills, demonstrated mentorship experience, and knowledge of environmental restoration and enhancement, we encourage you to apply for our crew supervisor positions.
