Our AmeriCorps members improve public lands while also improving their lives. Crews of 7-8 young people meet daily, work mostly outdoors in natural resource conservation projects, and return home each night. They can learn to use a chainsaw, build a fence, and maintain hiking/biking trails. During their 3-month term, learn natural resources job skills and celebrate accomplishments. Following the successful completion of a 3-month term, members are eligible to enroll in a 9-month term. AmeriCorps members earn a living stipend and a Segal Education Award for college or industry certifications. Afterward, HOC supports our young adults to begin a career path, post-secondary education, or both.
