Organization Background: Idaho Conservation Corps (ICC) is a program of Northwest Youth Corps (NYC), a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering youth and young adults to become successful, resilient members of their communities. To achieve this, NYC provides a variety of outdoor, conservation-specific programs to youth and young adults throughout the Northwest emphasizing education, leadership, and personal growth. Since 1984, NYC and its resource management partners have provided opportunities to over 19,000 youth and young adults to learn, grow, and experience success. NYCs programs serve over 800 youth and young adults annually, with programs operating in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and California. Position Description: Crew leaders manage and supervise conservation crews of four young adults, ages 19 and up, over the course of an 8 week session. Though schedules can vary, most crews will conduct project work Monday through Friday throughout their 8-week experience. On Saturday and Sunday, crews conduct resupply, shower, do laundry and participate in recreational activities (e.g., a hike). While on hitch, crews spend work days together and evenings in camp. While on hitch, field staff will be responsible for completing a variety of hands-on, conservation-oriented projects on public and private lands, and implementing a highly structured camp experience, including facilitation of group meals and outdoor education curriculum. Crew leaders are balanced individuals who must possess an inspirational charisma, embodying compassion and patience. In many ways our leaders teach our participants how to navigate a challenging work and social environment with grace and positivity. This seasonal position not only allows crew leaders to deliver an impactful, educational experience to young people in their communities, but can also provide an entry-point into the fields of natural resource management, youth development, and outdoor education.

Project Management & Implementation - Leaders are responsible for safely completing conservation projects by training, working with and supervising crews over 40 hours/week. Developing skills and effectively delegating responsibilities to make your crew as efficient as possible is critical to successful leadership in our programs. Leaders serve as the principal liaison between project sponsors and members of the local community. In the field, leaders provide direction to their crew with specific attention to safe work practices, proper tool use, work quality, and productivity. Crew leaders are mentors and role models, setting the pace and tone of the project site. This position is physically, emotionally, and mentally demanding. Leaders will lift heavy loads, walk long distances, and should expect to find each project physically challenging.
