TerraCorps   is an innovative national service program that prepares and mobilizes emerging leaders to help communities conserve and secure land for the health and well-being of people and nature. We do this by supporting AmeriCorps members who serve with nonprofit organizations across the state to tackle issues around land access, urban agriculture, and conservation. This year we are looking for 48 members to join the TerraCorps team! As a member you can serve with one of our nonprofit partners, in one of five coordinator positions: Community Engagement Coordinator, Youth Education Coordinator, Land Stewardship Coordinator, Regional Collaboration Coordinator, and Urban Agriculture Coordinator. Community Engagement Coordinators (CEC)   build the long-term capacity of their Service Sites by developing culturally inclusive systems, programming, partnerships, and events. By collaborating with community groups, CECs demonstrate how the sustainable use and conservation of land can help address community needs related to education, public health, economic development, neighborhood revitalization, homelessness, poverty, hunger, and cultural decline. By helping a broader cross-section of people experience the benefits of land, CECs build connections between the environment and people that increase public support for land access, revitalization, and conservation initiatives.  Members serve in full-time (38 hour/week), 11-month positions from August 26th, 2019- July 24th, 2020. These 1,700-hour AmeriCorps positions receive a living allowance and are eligible for an education award, and additional AmeriCorps benefits.
