AmeriCorps is a national service program that places young adults into intensive service positions where they learn valuable work skills, earn money for education, and develop an appreciation for citizenship. KCD sponsors AmeriCorps positions through the Washington Conservation Corps, Washington Service Corps, and Mt. Adams Institute VetsWork programs. KCD supports the AmeriCorps mission of serving local communities and training future leaders. AmeriCorps members serve on KCD Shorelines, Forestry, Community Agriculture, and Outreach teams.
Mt. Adams Institute is actively recruiting applicants for the 2021 service year. KCD will be sponsoring a Forest Stewardship Technician IP placement again in 2021. Are you a military veteran interested in a career in the natural resources management and/or public lands? These life changing service opportunities promote skill development and build professional networks.
