Join us in partnership!

The Sierra Nevada Americorps Partnership (SNAP) is an 11-month National Service program intended to support the restoration, volunteer engagement, and education/outreach efforts of organizations and agencies across the Sierra Nevada. Host Sites are organizations that support AmeriCorps Members for their term of service. These organizations include environmental nonprofit organizations, state and public agencies, land trusts, federal agencies, and more. The SNAP program is currently seeking dedicated Host Sites that share a passion for guiding and inspiring early-stage professionals in the conservation field.

Host Sites provide SNAP members with day-to-day, boots-on-the-ground, hands-on experiences that are building the conservation workforce across the Sierra Nevada. In addition to a share of cost, Host sites lend their field and classroom expertise while Sierra Nevada Alliance manages hiring and program administration. Together we offer early-stage professionals an opportunity to explore and deepen their skills in the areas of conservation, environmental education, and volunteer management. SNAP members bring enthusiasm, energy, new academic ideas, and the passion to get things done.

2024-25 Request for Applications to Host SNAP Members

The Sierra Nevada AmeriCorps Partnership (SNAP) invites Sierra Nevada conservation organizations, agencies, and tribal governments in California and Nevada to apply to host an AmeriCorps member/s by becoming a SNAP Host Site for the upcoming program year from November 1-September 30.

Applications can be submitted anytime, but the deadline for the Host Site Applications for the upcoming service year is soon; please contact us ASAP if you are interested in hosting a SNAP member.

Host Sites contribute a cash match to the SNAP program for each AmeriCorps service member.

Sierra Nevada Alliance Member Groups: $26,000, Non-Member Group organizations: $26,500, Agencies: $28,500.

In addition to the cash match, it costs an additional $31,500, not paid by your organization, (plus a $10,000 ed award) to fund a full-time SNAP member position. This amount can be used as an in-kind match for your organization’s funding applications, if applicable.
