We currently have 17 Partner Organizations throughout the Sierra Nevada, hosting 21 Full-Term and 9 Half-Term SNAP Members for the 2020-21 SNAP Program.

We are now accepting applications for 2021-22 Host Sites! Applications are due by 5pm on July 15th. Click “Apply to Host a Member” for application materials and more information.

SNAP Host Sites are organizations hosting SNAP Members for 11 or 6 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.
