Appalachian Conservation Corps
Appalachian Conservation Corps (ACC), a program of Conservation Legacy, provides opportunities for individuals in the mid-Atlantic region to jumpstart their career in conservation through the Field Crew and Individual Placement Programs. Individuals are provided training, hands on experience in the field, and professional development opportunities in order for them to obtain the tools needed to become future conservation leaders.
ACC’s Individual Placement Program connects approximately 60 people each year to internship-like positions at over 20 host sites across Virginia, Maryland, D.C., Ohio, and Pennsylvania. This growing program aims to provide valuable project-based experience for folks with more specialized interests and backgrounds. The Member Support Coordinator will work with the IP Program Manager to provide ongoing support for the IP’s throughout the member “life cycle” from recruitment to exiting to ensure that they leave the program having met their goals, and with tools needed to further their careers in conservation.
The ideal candidate will enjoy working with a variety of people from different backgrounds and roles, developing relationships and maintaining a level of professionalism. This position requires the ability to multi-task and problem solve as you will be supporting positions that all vary in type and complexity. As this is a growing program, we are seeking someone to assist with developing the program to bring an enhanced experience to our IP’s and Program Partners.
