CTNC AmeriCorps develops service projects to remove barriers to environmental education.
Conservation Trust for North Carolina is the host organization of CTNC AmeriCorps, a ten-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 with 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 the Conservation Trust for North Carolina and supported by a grant from the North Carolina Commission on Volunteerism and Community Service in the Office of Governor Roy Cooper. 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!
