Montana Conservation Corps (MCC) is a non-profit, AmeriCorps-affiliated organization which operates from offices in Bozeman, Helena, Kalispell and Missoula, Montana. Our work takes place in a variety of prairie and forested locations in Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, North Dakota and South Dakota. MCC strives to give its participants the experience of a lifetime through challenging conservation work and the rigors of life outdoors, coupled with education developed specifically to create engaged citizens and lifelong environmental stewards. A term with MCC provides the ideal opportunity to discover personal growth, greater self-awareness, increased confidence, communication and leadership skills, as well as the ability to meaningfully engage with those of diverse backgrounds.
Piikani Lands Staff Crew Members will work as part of a team of 6-8 people, including 2 leaders, to complete a variety of natural resource and community projects. Duties include establishing and maintaining good working relationships with MCC regional staff, project technical advisors, volunteers, and fellow crew members, as well as perform designated duties with a positive attitude. They will work under the supervision of the Pikanii Lands Crew Leaders and MCC Regional Program Manager. Members will receive two weeks of orientation and technical skills training, followed by 11 weeks of field-based project work, taking place on tribal and public lands. Though most projects will be “day projects”, meaning the members will go home at night, there will likely be a couple of weeks where the crew will camp out overnight.
MCC seeks to provide access and opportunity to a diverse group of staff and participants, while continuing to identify and reduce barriers to being involved in our organization and programs. We encourage applicants of all backgrounds to apply.
