The SNAP program is currently recruiting host sites to host members from mid-October 2022 through mid-September 2023. These members will provide 1,700 hours of full-term service for nonprofit organizations and public agencies throughout the Sierra, helping organizations to implement restoration projects, educate local students and community members, and recruit and manage volunteers.

Costs for sites to host term members for next year’s service term are:

      • $23,000 for Alliance member organizations
      • $23,500 for non-member organizations
      • $26,183 for public agencies

For application materials or more information, click “Apply to Host a Member”, or contact Seth Connolly at seth@sierranevadaalliance.org.

SNAP Host Sites are organizations hosting SNAP Members for 11 or 5.5 months of service. These organizations include environmental nonprofit organizations, state and public agencies, land trusts, and federal agencies. SNAP Members carry out meaningful service projects under the guidance of staff at each site. Host sites are expected to provide a site supervisor/mentor to guide and train SNAP Members and to provide the resources and support necessary for impactful service experiences.

Host Sites are located throughout the Sierra Nevada mountain range. The 400-mile long Sierra Nevada range is the geographic backbone of California, encompassing over 33,000 square miles, 22 counties, and 24 major watersheds. Sierra watersheds provide over 60% of California’s developed water supply, and endless recreation opportunities. In addition, the Sierra is home to 50% of all plant species in California, and 400 species of birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians.
