CTNC AmeriCorps

CTNC AmeriCorps develops service projects to remove barriers to environmental education.

Conservation Trust for North Carolina is the host organization of CTNC AmeriCorps, a 10-month national service program designed to support environmental education, stewardship and outreach that builds bridges between conservation organizations and the local communities they seek to serve.

Members are placed at host sites throughout North Carolina to develop service projects designed to remove barriers limiting North Carolinians' access to environmental education. The program supports rising conservation leaders through real-world, hands-on experience, professional development, networking, community engagement and volunteerism. Members complete their year of service prepared for a career in conservation or environmental education. 

CTNC AmeriCorps is managed by Conservation Trust for North Carolina and supported by a grant from the North Carolina Commission on Volunteerism and Community Service. We offer AmeriCorps service members a living stipend ($13,732), health insurance reimbursement (up to $150 per month), childcare assistance and monthly professional development opportunities. Participants who complete the program receive an education award of $5,920. Meet our members currently serving in the field!

Program goals:

Make environmental education more accessible to racially and socioeconomically diverse audiences

Provide experience for future leaders seeking conservation careers

Build bridges between conservation groups and the communities they serve

Connect more North Carolinians to the outdoors through environmental education

We have placed more than 100 AmeriCorps members with host sites and reached tens of thousands of North Carolinians through education and service projects about conservation.
