26 AmeriCorps positions are available at various locations throughout Michigan. These are 10 month (1700 hour) terms beginning January 30, 2020 through November 27, 2020 in various fields of Natural Resource Management, Conservation, and Environmental Education. The Huron Pines AmeriCorps program has been developing leaders in conservation in communities across Michigan since 2007. Huron Pines AmeriCorps members strive to enhance Michigan’s natural resources and foster environmental stewardship by engaging local volunteers, community groups and schools in service projects, hands-on learning opportunities and educational workshops.
We’ve seen over 150 Huron Pines AmeriCorps members come through the program over the last decade and their accomplishments have been staggering. Huron Pines AmeriCorps members have restored over 1,000 miles of river, improved over 22,000 acres of public land and reached over 73,500 students across Michigan.
In 2015, we were honored to receive the Governor’s Service Award for Outstanding National Service Program. This is an award we share with all of the members, organizations and funders who have partnered with us to make this program a success.
The program places degree seeking individuals for a 10-month term of full-time volunteer service with conservation organizations across Michigan. Through service Huron Pines AmeriCorps members receive real‐world experience, networking and training opportunities, a living stipend, health coverage and, upon completing their service, an education award to pursue advanced degrees or courses. Huron Pines AmeriCorps is a program of Huron Pines and is supported in part by the Corporation for National and Community Service, Michigan Community Service Commission, Huron Pines and contributions from host sites.
