Resilience Corps NC

Resilience Corps NC works alongside communities to address climate and conservation challenges through service.

Conservation Trust for North Carolina offers Resilience Corps NC, a national service program of AmeriCorps, designed to support capacity building for resilience, environmental education, and stewardship and outreach that builds bridges between conservation organizations and the local communities they seek to serve.

Through Resilience Corps NC, CTNC partners with host sites in North Carolina to address issues related to environmental education, disaster services, climate resilience, and race equity in their community. The program supports rising conservation leaders through real-world, hands-on experience, professional development, networking, community engagement, and volunteerism. Understanding that a welcoming, inclusive workspace is critical to member success during service, host site partners participate in ongoing racial equity training to ensure they are prepared to support members with a variety of lived experiences.

Resilience Corps NC 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 ($30,000), health insurance reimbursement (up to $150 per month), child care assistance, and monthly professional development opportunities. Participants who complete the program receive an education award of $6,195. Meet our members currently serving in the field!
