Enrolling in AmeriCorps program

Climb CDC, a local nonprofit, betters the youth in our community by helping them with workforce training.

This gives them a skill set that they can use for their careers and not just temporary employment.

They’re enrolling in their AmeriCorps program, which helps participants by providing them with an educational award worth around $3,000.

It also helps get them involved in their community as well as building their resume. Climb CDC Program Manager Conservation Rob Walthall said, “A day in the life of an AmeriCorps member, they’re usually here around 8:30 in the morning, loading their equipment and going through safety briefs for the day. Load out to the project site, perform their work until about 2 or 2:30, come back here, debrief, go over lessons learned on the project site and how they can improve things for the next day.”

Climb CDC has 25 open slots. You’ll need to register by the 1st of January.

You’ll need to be between the ages of 17 and 26, be able to pass a background check, and be willing to donate 900 hours of your time before the program ends in October.
