Program Co-Director


About the organization

Located in Lowell, MA, TerraCorps is an AmeriCorps affiliated start-up environmental non-profit preparing and mobilizing emerging leaders to help communities gain access to and conserve land for people and nature. Working at the intersection of the land conservation and urban agriculture movements, our vision is to create a future where land is the foundation of health and well-being for ALL people in EVERY community.


Program Co-Directors are key staff members in the implementation of the TerraCorps program vision on a state-wide scale. They play a primary role in managing service member experience and partner relationships for our AmeriCorps program. We will hire one Massachusetts Program Co-Director to join our existing team, and four Program Co-Directors to launch new programs in two states (Connecticut and Rhode Island) as part of our planned expansion. Reporting to the TerraCorps Chief Program Officer, Program Co-Directors will work in pairs (two in each state) to successfully implement the TerraCorps service model by building and cultivating strong partnerships and supporting TerraCorps members’ service experience and professional development. Program Co-Directors will oversee between 20-48 Members and 15-25 Service Site Partners depending on the state.

As an alternative to conventional management hierarchy, TerraCorps uses a Self-Managed Teams framework to leverage employees’ strengths and distribute decision-making authority. We value collaboration, continuous learning, and flexibility. Each team of Program Co-Directors will work together to ensure that all program responsibilities are met and have opportunities to work with other TerraCorps staff members on cross-functional projects. Major responsibilities include: program operations, partner relationship management, member support and development, reporting and data tracking, and grant management.


We welcome applicants with a variety of education levels, experience, and skills.
