Apply to Host Members
The application period to host a 2018-19 SNAP Member is closed.
SNAP will begin a new term of our highly successful AmeriCorps program in the Sierra Nevada in October 2018. SNAP will place 28 highly qualified and motivated, full-time AmeriCorps members at California and Nevada conservation organizations and natural resource agencies serving the 400 mile long ‘Range of Light’. Members will serve mid-October 2018 – mid-September 2019.
The Sierra Nevada AmeriCorps Partnership, a program of the Sierra Nevada Alliance, has already chosen host sites from California Sierra Nevada conservation organizations and agencies to become a Sierra Nevada AmeriCorps Partnership Host Site for the upcoming 2018-19 SNAP Program. We will open up the application period for the 2019-20 program in Spring 2018, and will also consider applications 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 numerous 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 mid-October 2019 – mid-September 2020. SNAP Members conduct valuable watershed restoration and assessment projects, as well as watershed education projects, and volunteer recruitment and support.
