They learn to use chainsaws, build fences, restore or maintain natural habitat, and maintain hiking/biking trails. During their 3-month term, they will learn natural resources job skills and celebrate accomplishments. Following the successful completion of a 3-month term, members are eligible to enroll in a 9-month term. AmeriCorps members earn a living stipend and a Segal Education Award for college or industry certifications. Afterward, HOC supports our young adults to begin a career path, post-secondary education, or both.
