The Southwest Conservation Corps (SCC) is a local, non-profit, Americorps-affiliated organization with offices in Tucson, Arizona, Durango,Colorado, and Salida, Colorado. SCC hires young adults, ages 16-25, to complete conservation work projects on public lands through the Southwest. SCC has a strong experiential learning and service component, and life skills are learned via formal lessons, on-the-job training, and the process of communal living.
The majority of SCC’s programs are residential programs, with crews camping in either front or backcountry settings for 9-11 day periods; schedules may vary by program and region. SCC serves a diverse population that is representative of the Southwest, including at-risk youth, college graduates, and a cross-section of ethnicities and income levels.

Successful candidates will demonstrate high standards, compassion, excellent judgment, and the desire to devote themselves (at least seasonally!) to youth and the environment. The Crew Leader position requires both supervisory and technical aptitude, and a high level of comfort in the outdoors.
