SNAP Host Site Applications are due now; we are still accepting applications, but please get in touch with us ASAP.
SNAP will recruit 32 Members to begin another year of our highly successful AmeriCorps program in the Sierra Nevada. This year’s service term will run from November 1 through September 30. These highly qualified and motivated, full-time AmeriCorps members serve at conservation organizations and natural resource agencies serving the 400-mile-long ‘Range of Light.’
The Sierra Nevada AmeriCorps Partnership, a program of the Sierra Nevada Alliance, will choose host sites from Sierra Nevada conservation organizations and agencies for members who will serve 1,700-hour terms. The Host Site application period will be open through July 30 or until all spots are filled. Please communicate with us during the application process to ensure you are on track for acceptance. We will consider applications from California organizations and from Nevada-based organizations that do a significant amount of work in the Sierra and its neighboring communities.
From Mt. Whitney to the Feather River, from the foothills to the summits, at organizations both big and small, our AmeriCorps Members have contributed to restoring the health of Sierra’s precious watersheds through important service projects. SNAP Members have removed invasive species, stabilized stream banks, educated thousands of Sierra Nevada residents on local and regional watershed issues, cleaned up hundreds of miles of river, built dozens of trails, monitored water quality at hundreds of sites, and much, much more.
Prospective Host Site applicants will receive notification on their applications on a rolling basis or by August 15. SNAP would prefer host site applicants to communicate with us throughout the interest and application process.
