Chesapeake Bay Trust Corp Members Program

Each year, the Chesapeake Conservation Corps Program places young adults (ages 18-25) with nonprofit or government agencies to work fulltime in the environmental field for a one-year term of paid service in the Chesapeake Bay region. The Corps Members receive hands-on green job and leadership experience through on-the-ground experience leading and assisting with projects and programs for their host sites, extensive trainings hosted by the Trust and other service-learning opportunities including grant writing and project management.

Corps Members also develop meaningful connections and friendships with each other creating a network of young environmental professionals that is a powerful resource even after the yearlong term. Ultimately the Corps Program aims to empower young professionals to take action and make impactful change as leaders and experts in their respective career fields.

The Chesapeake Bay Trust anticipates placing 30-35 Corps Members with nonprofit organizations and government agencies throughout the region to work fulltime for a stipend-support year of service ($18,000) beginning on August 21, 2018.
