AmeriCorps Service Member Position with TerraCorps & Williamstown Rural Lands Foundation

TerraCorps cultivates an ecosystem of people and organizations that center community land ownership, access, and stewardship to support a diversity of interests that benefit human health and environmental sustainability. We value the power of local nonprofits to best understand and serve their communities. Our goal is to help them succeed by providing them access to the AmeriCorps national service model to build organizational capacity.
TerraCorps partners with a network of 40+ nonprofits in Massachusetts and Rhode Island focused on community needs related to local land conservation and sustainable agriculture. These partners act as service sites for a new cohort of up to 60 AmeriCorps service members annually. Service members are paired with a site supervisor who provides guidance and mentorship while they learn to manage community programs and projects over an 11-month (August – July), 1,700-hour service term.

Williamstown Rural Lands Foundation is interviewing candidates for a Community Engagement Coordinator (CEC). The CEC will engage with the Programs Director to manage volunteers on community service projects, educate or train individuals in environmental stewardship or environmentally conscious practices, and complete three capacity building projects. Potential projects include:
Tell our story. You will build our capacity to tell the story of our impact on community and the environment incorporating both qualitative and quantitative data into video and photos, print and online newsletters, story maps, fliers, and other media.
Identify community needs. You will seek input from various constituents on community needs for programming, information, and experiences and explore and implement opportunities for meeting them.
Work with people. You will create youth volunteer opportunities to foster skills in leadership and independence, help carry out volunteer workdays, and seek ways to increase organization participation in regional stewardship and community science initiatives.
