Position Summary: The Crew Member (CM) will assist in the successful completion of MCC natural resource and community service projects. This is not a 9-5 job; rather it is an experience where long hours and extended time away from your home base are to be expected. Crews will camp for most of their terms, oftentimes in remote locations in varied terrain and in all weather conditions. Work may include building or maintaining trails, treating or removing invasive species, building fences, operating chainsaws to reduce wildfire risks by thinning trees, among many other types of projects. Not all CMs will work on all types of projects. Crews may be deployed for natural disaster relief. CMs are expected to participate in all elements of the MCC program to the best of their ability, performing designated crew role functions and maintaining a positive attitude throughout the program. The CM will also establish and maintain a good working relationship with other partner personnel, Crew Leaders, MCC staff and any volunteers who come into contact with the crew. The Crew Member is an AmeriCorps member and is entitled to the benefit package offered all AmeriCorps members.
