The Conservation Trust for North Carolina is the host organization for AmeriCorps, a ten-month national service program in environmental education and outreach.

Our program seeks to reconnect people with the outdoors and to develop future leaders in conservation. AmeriCorps members will develop service projects that help remove barriers to environmental education throughout North Carolina, as well as help expand the diversity of backgrounds among conservation leaders in the state. The 2017-2018 service year began on September 6, 2017.

We offer a living stipend ($13,470), health insurance reimbursement (up to $150 per month), childcare assistance, and monthly professional development opportunities. Participants who complete the program will receive an education award of $5,775.
