The Southwest Conservation Corps (SCC) is a program of the non-profit service organization, Conservation Legacy, that is built on the legacy of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) that operated from 1933 – 1942. SCC provides youth and young adults opportunities to complete conservation projects on public lands. While serving with SCC, members receive training on job skills, conflict resolution, leadership, teamwork, and environmental stewardship. Programs are developed using a step ladder approach to provide a progression of skill development based on a member’s needs. Members receive a weekly living allowance, training, and an AmeriCorps Education Award (for qualifying individuals).
The Youth Field Supervisor’s primary roles are to provide field and logistical support to our field staff and seasonal youth conservation crews by offering technical assistance, morale support, and ensuring program integrity through policy enforcement and positive mentoring. The Youth Field Supervisor will assist with, program logistics, and planning and facilitating staff trainings. The Youth Field Supervisors will support both youth programing in the spring and summer season and transition to supporting adult programing in the fall. Field time during training season is 100%. Field/office time will vary depending on seasonal and programmatic needs but will usually be close to 50% or more of this positions’ time. This is a great opportunity to continue field exposure, while also developing in administrative skills, programmatic operations, and logistics.
