Description
A Crew Leader’s term of service has two distinct pieces: leadership development and leading their own crew. During the Leadership Development Program the Crew Leaders operate as their own crew. They learn and grow individually, produce strong bonds, develop running jokes and create high expectations for quality work. Midway through the spring they are paired with a co-leader and practice these new skills leading their peer group on various projects. During this time they gain valuable skills to prepare for leading and training their own crew. By the end of May the Crew Leaders begin their field season and start mentoring the members of their own crew. Whether it’s clearing downed trees with a chainsaw, building a new trail in the deep wilderness, or restoring sage grouse habitat on the eastern plains; crews complete projects of all sorts in every type of Western landscape. Although our participants spend most of their time outside and living in a tent, they will get involved in their local communities by finding volunteer opportunities and attending public meetings. Joining MCC is not a job – it’s a serious commitment to service and an opportunity to immerse oneself in a diverse experience.
