Challenge yourself as a leader of a 5-person crew while conducting critical conservation work in some of the Southwest’s most beautiful areas. Serve from the mountains of Nevada to the vast landscapes of the Great Basin and Mojave Deserts. The NCC is looking for experienced Crew Leaders to tackle day-to-day responsibilities of crew life.
You will lead four AmeriCorps Crew Members while building trail, running chainsaws, or performing other restoration projects on public lands 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 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 commitment where you will always be a resource to the members, 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. The successful applicant will demonstrate dependability, excellent judgment, and high standards. We are looking for an individual 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 peers, and with the outdoors will last a lifetime.
