Leadership Development Program Member

Program Dates: March 20, 2017 - May 18, 2017
Spend a season or more working and camping outside at some of Nevada’s premier natural areas. Serve alongside volunteers from across the country while making a lasting contribution to Nevada’s natural heritage. Gain valuable field experience while working on habitat improvement, restoration, and recreation projects with the U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, Nevada Division of Forestry, and many other federal and state agencies. Projects may include trail construction and maintenance, hazardous fuels reduction, and habitat restoration. Your experience begins with two months as a crew member on a 5-person crew. During your tenure as a crew member you will receive leadership development training, spend extended periods of time camping in the field with fellow crew leader candidates, and take turns acting as the lead on service projects that are meant to prepare you for the challenges of leading a crew. Promotion to Crew Leader is not guaranteed & depends on performance review. Upon successful completion of the leadership development training you may be assigned a summer project (based out of Reno, NV; Las Vegas, NV; or Great Basin National Park) and will take on the responsibility of leading a crew. You will lead four AmeriCorps Crew Members while building trail or running chainsaws in some of Nevada’s most beautiful locales. You will coordinate with agency partners and collaborate with peers to see that project goals are accomplished safely and efficiently. Based on your specific project you will be camped in the field with your crew on either 4-day or 8-day “tours” often in primitive and remote locations and will be responsible for managing and facilitating a healthy and cohesive community within your crew. Different than any other professional experience you could imagine, being a crew leader with the NCC is a full-time, intensive commitment where you will always be a resource to the members serving with you both while on service project sites or back at camp after a long day. Both preparing for and leading a crew requires unwavering dedication, and a willingness to put the needs of others first. Successful applicants will demonstrate dependability, excellent judgment, and high standards. We are looking for individuals who will lead by example and be a role model for the members who join our program. Though this position is challenging, the rewards are abundant and the bonds forged with your crew, peers and with the outdoors will last a lifetime.
