Live, serve, and explore Maine’s wilderness, coast and mountains with Maine Conservation Corps (MCC). Members serve in teams of three to six, using traditional construction and maintenance skills to enhance hiking, biking, skiing, and other types of recreational trails throughout the state. Learn how to highline a 500-pound boulder to construct a stone staircase, build timber structures, or open access to treasured natural areas. You’ll make a difference in local communities, while connecting to nature, peers and yourself. Build a path, while finding yours.
Field Team Members will participate in job readiness training, covering essential hard and soft skills, and will complete conservation projects as part of a team. You can expect to serve on physically challenging conservation projects in any kind of weather, gaining hands on experience in the groundwork of stewardship. The Team Member position requires a positive attitude, a willingness to learn, the ability to live and serve collaboratively in a team setting, and the physical ability to carry out the essential functions of the position.
Team Members are 675 hour AmeriCorps members who will receive a weekly living of $270 (less taxes). Other benefits include a wide range of training and networking opportunities, housing during training, pro-deals, a Maine State Park Pass, and an education award of $2,255.24. Some members may also be eligible for student loan deferment and childcare reimbursement.
