Overview

GAIN PROFESSIONAL SKILLS, CONTRIBUTE TO CLIMATE RESILIENCE, AND LAUNCH YOUR NATURAL RESOURCE CAREER!

At MCC crews camp while working on physically demanding and essential natural resource and conservation projects on some of the most breathtaking landscapes in the Northern Rockies and Plains. The Senior Crew Leader helps guide our crew leaders through their technical skills and leadership training, and is an excellent stepping stone into a staff conservation corps or federal agency position. The Senior Crew Leader will assist staff in planning and implementing training for leaders and members, facilitate and deliver MCC education components to MCC crews in the field, visit crews during the field season to help ensure the successful completion of MCC projects and programming, may be called upon to lead an existing crew when necessary, and provide logistical support to ensure regional operations run smoothly. Our Senior Crew Leaders are an essential component of our regional teams, and provide mentorship to our leaders and members. If you are looking for something unique, have a desire to take the next step in your leadership development, and want to make a positive impact on conservation leaders, then this is the perfect opportunity for you!

About Montana Conservation Corps

Montana Conservation Corps' (MCC) promise is to ignite the potential - for leadership, for service, for action and resilience - that exists in every person. Founded in 1991, MCC is a private, nonprofit organization that serves Montana (and neighboring states), with offices in Bozeman, Helena, Missoula, and Kalispell. MCC receives Federal grant money through the Corporation for National & Community Service, which is used to provide participant stipends and education awards, as well as to support our programming. By weaving together leadership development, teamwork, civic engagement, and work-skills training with direct service to our lands and communities, MCC helps members develop competencies for achieving success. In return, our corps members protect amazing wild places. While most of the work we accomplish is in the field, our main goal is not to build trails but to help members develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to be active citizens in their community.
