Stewards VISTA: Conservation Legacy - CCNC - NC Outreach
This is an exciting opportunity to educate Eastern North Carolina small, minority, and traditionally underserved individuals about USDA funded conservation practices that will restore and improve their land’s native Longleaf pine. This is a Conservation Legacy VISTA position working with its Conservation Corps North Carolina (CCNC) program. The person in this position will be placed in the Moore County area and work under the supervision of Sandhills Prescribed Burn Association Conservation Legacy started 20 years ago as a local corps program in Southeast Colorado with the mission to engage youth and young adults to complete important conservation projects for the region. The organization grew into a national organization that now supports local conservation service programs in the Eastern and Western regions of the nation, all of which provide high quality programming that produces high impact for local communities. This VISTA placement would serve Conservation Corps North Carolina (CCNC), a Conservation Legacy corps program that serves North Carolina. CCNC started in 2013 to serve local communities and became a Conservation Legacy program in 2019. CCNC’s mission is to connect youth and young adults to meaningful conservation service work that benefits North Carolina communities.
