Conservation Intern

Montana Conservation Corps

About the organization

“Inspiring young people through hands-on conservation service to be leaders, stewards of the land, and engaged citizens who improve their communities.”

Those are the words we live by and the mission we serve here at Montana Conservation Corps. Each year we enroll hundreds of young adults and school-aged youth in our AmeriCorps and Youth Service Expedition programs. The first three months are spent teaching leaders wilderness, leadership, and interpersonal skills as part of our highly-acclaimed Leadership Development Program. Our leaders then pass those skills along to their crews of members, as they live, learn, and serve together in some of our country’s wildest places. They complete conservation projects in local communities, national forests, state and national parks, wildlife refuges and federally designated wilderness areas.

Duties

MCC’s Conservation Intern (CI) program makes a measurable difference in conservation efforts while strengthening the experience of young adults. CIs serve at partnering federal/state agencies, nonprofits, tribal offices, and other community-based conservation organizations across the region. The three-month AmeriCorps term of service extends from May - August and members gain insight into natural resource-related fieldwork throughout Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, and the Dakotas.
