The Resource Management Apprenticeship Program (RMAP) connects regional college students and recent graduates with resource managers to gain hands-on knowledge and skills to prepare them for a career in resource management. Southwest Conservation Corps and Mountain Studies Institute are excited to announce this revamp of our former cohort program, FLIP (Federal Lands Internship Program).
This rigorous, paid, 10-week career-building apprenticeship program offers an opportunity to learn from professionals in the field, build skills, and network while contributing to relevant projects. Each student will be paired with a mentor for a nine-week internship and participate in a one-week orientation as well as a final presentation at the end of the program. Students learn methods used by resource management professionals and community planners and contribute to real-world projects.
