EarthCorps seeks a part-time Outreach Coordinator to find and recruit extraordinary people to bring into our leadership development program for emerging environmental leaders. This role is often the first person to connect with potential candidates which means they set the tone for what it means to be a part of the EarthCorps community.
The Outreach Coordinator is part of the organization’s program team, which works to deliver a transformative environmental service learning experience to it’s participants.
Crew Members are the ones out in the field every day working on teams and doing the physical service necessary to restore green spaces across the Puget Sound region. This is a training-level, seasonal AmeriCorps position with EarthCorps. Incoming 2020 Crew Members will serve from June through December.
Crew members will work on teams, tackling environmental restoration projects in the field throughout the Puget Sound Region. Their work directly improves the resiliency of our land by restoring habitat, improving water and air quality, reducing erosion, sequestering carbon and engaging the broader community to become stewards of our shared resource. Typical projects include invasive plant removal, native plant installation, trail maintenance, erosion control, and site maintenance.
In addition to impactful service, Corps Members have the opportunity to grow professionally and personally through training, implementing environmental projects, feedback and reflection. Crew Members learn valuable team-building skills as they work on their communication, conflict management and leadership capacity.
As EarthCorps crews return to the field this summer, we are taking necessary steps to implement additional social distancing protocol. The physical, environmental service projects being done in the field will be very similar to those done previously. However, many Corps Program activities and systems are likely to look a bit different. These new systems include transportation to and from service sites, layout of activities at service sites, implementation of trainings and workshops (small group trainings, remote trainings, digital workshops, etc.), and a reduction in community interactions and volunteer events, among others.
