SNAP will be recruiting Members to begin a new term of our highly successful AmeriCorps program in the Sierra Nevada in November 2021. 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’. All Members will serve until September 30, 2022.
The Sierra Nevada AmeriCorps Partnership, a program of the Sierra Nevada Alliance, will choose host sites from Sierra Nevada conservation organizations and agencies as Sierra Nevada AmeriCorps Partnership Host Sites for the 2021-22 SNAP Program’s Members, who will serve 1700-hour terms, beginning on November 1, 2021. The Host Site application period will be open from June 30th through July 15th, 2021, and will consider applications from California organizations as well as from Nevada-based organizations who do a significant amount of work in California.
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 the 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.
Qualifying organizations will receive a full-time AmeriCorps Member or Members to serve at their organization/agency from November 1, 2021 through September 30, 2021. In addition to 28 SNAP Members who conduct valuable watershed restoration and assessment projects, provide watershed education to community members and students, and support volunteer recruitment and engagement, we are adding 4 full-time Climate Action Corps Fellows to our cohort this year. These Fellows will be focused on forest health initiatives, wildfire and climate change mitigation, and community education and engagement to support resilient, climate-adapted communities.
