Job Description

PASE Corps is a nonprofit organization that is solving the the chronic problem of employers who need candidates that have experience and job seekers that need a job to get the experience that employers require.

PASE Corps Environmental Associates are passionate about sharpening their skills and abilities and building their resume for a career that makes a difference. 


Environmental Associates become part of PASE Corps and build their resume by:
Participating in weekly advanced environmental training sessions that are based on skills employers told us were the most important or often missing in resumes and experience that they wished more candidates would have -- based on nationwide environmental employer surveys conducted by the Environmental Career Center. Researching and teaching to your peers (classmates) technical and environmental policy issues. 

Much of our advanced training sessions will focus on the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and associated laws and regulations such as Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, Section 7 of the Endangered Species Act, NEPA regulations of NASA, Air Force, Navy, Army, NOAA and others. 

After learning the basic NEPA procedures, Environmental associates will research and teach advanced concepts derived from recent White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) NEPA guidance.

Researching and preparing proposals for grants, cooperative agreements, and environmental contracts -- environmental employers seek technical staff that can also write proposals and win work!
Adapt, research, and train on other skills that environmental employers introduce to us during the semester -- for example, Brownfields, climate change planning, ISO 14001 EMS, and other environmental compliance laws, regulations, and skills.

Limited to 25 participants for Spring 2018 sessions. Two-hour training sessions on Mondays from September through December.  Additional training sessions added based on employer/partner's needs. 

Some Associates may be selected to work on short-term projects for our Partners (municipalities, government agencies, consultants, and nonprofit environmental organizations).  Others may be placed in internships on-site with our Partners. Ultimate goal is placing PASE Corps Environmental Associates in rewarding entry-level environmental sustainability careers.
