AmeriCorps NCCC FEMA Corps Team Leader - Summer 2019
FEMA Corps, part of the AmeriCorps NCCC program, is a full-time, team-based residential program for people ages 18-24. Must be a U.S citizen. Members work directly with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and are assigned to regional campuses. The mission of AmeriCorps NCCC is to strengthen communities and develop leaders through team-based national and community service. Like AmeriCorps NCCC, FEMA Corps requires an 12-month commitment of its Team Leaders, who lead teams of 8-12 corps members. Teams are assigned exclusively to disaster related service projects with FEMA and can expect to complete multiple service assignments during their term of service. FEMA Corps teams will be devoted solely to FEMA disaster response and recovery efforts and provide support in areas like coordinating logistics, working directly with disaster survivors, supporting disaster recovery centers, and sharing valuable disaster response and mitigation information with the public. During their term of service, Team Leaders are expected to be the primary point of contact for the team as well as FEMA and NCCC program staff. NCCC exceeds the responsibilities of a typical 9 to 5 job. A project sponsor may assign additional work, a member must complete additional Independent Service Project (ISP) hours, and members are required to participate in team activities, meetings and selected team role responsibilities. Due to the high level of responsibility, a member cannot engage in any outside activity (e.g., employment, classes, or personal volunteer opportunities) that either precludes, limits, or detracts from the member serving successfully. Lodging is provided by NCCC and FEMA, either at the campus or at the project site. You can learn more about FEMA Corps at and and follow us on Facebook at

Member Duties : FEMA Corps Team Leaders supervise, motivate, direct, and coordinate a team of young adults in a structured program of service, education, and training; maintain order; develop positive team morale; foster teamwork; monitor standards of behavior; ensure the safety of the members, including the proper use of equipment; model a good work ethic and work alongside members to set the work pace.
