The Neighborhood Design Center is one of many potential Host sites for the 2017-18 Chesapeake Conservation Corps service year through The Chesapeake Bay Trust. The Corps Program places young adults 18-25 with nonprofit or government agencies in the environmental field to work for a one-year term of paid service in the Chesapeake Bay region ($17,000 annual stipend). Not only are the participants working full time at their selected host site, but they also receive extensive leadership and professional development training. The Corps Program provides hands-on entry level experience and leadership opportunities as a stepping stone to careers in environmentally-related fields. This initiative is supported by the Trust, Constellation Energy, the National Park Service and the state of Maryland.
 
If successfully matched with the NDC, the Corps Member will be involved with our Community Design Works program and work in our Baltimore office. For more information, please contact Laura Wheaton, Program Manager, at lwheaton@ndc-md.org.
 
The Chesapeake Bay Trust anticipates placing around 30-35 Corps Members throughout the Mid-Atlantic region for a paid year of service beginning on August 22, 2017.  Applications must be submitted through the Trust’s online system by April 14, 2017 at 5:00 pm.
