Individual Placements

Appalachian Conservation Corps engages individuals in positions with federal, state and local land management agencies and environmentally focused non-profits working on specialized projects. Individual Placements (interns) are paired with a local supervisors and these positions offer more technical, hands-on experience in the work of these organizations or agencies and many times provide the training necessary to secure long term employment in these fields.

The type of position we offer can range from education and interpretation, digital marketing and media, historical research and preservation, to resource management and trail work.

Participants are paid a weekly stipend but are typically responsible for their own room and board. Applicants must be over 18 years of age. Start dates are varied and applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
