Whether you are passionate about conservation, land access, or sustainable agriculture, TerraCorps is here to help you serve local communities and build professional skills through transformative experiences! Apply to serve with TerraCorps and join a cohort of passionate Members taking on dynamic projects that connect communities to the land.
TerraCorps is an AmeriCorps affiliated start-up environmental non-profit preparing and mobilizing emerging leaders to help communities gain access to and conserve land for people and nature. Working at the intersection of the land conservation and urban agriculture movements, our vision is to create a future where land is the foundation of health and well-being for ALL people in EVERY community.
We do this by supporting AmeriCorps Members who serve with nonprofit organizations across Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island to tackle issues around land access, urban agriculture, and conservation. This year we are looking for 80+ Members to join the TerraCorps team!
As a Member you will have the exciting opportunity to serve with one of our nonprofit partners, in one of five coordinator positions: Community Engagement Coordinator, Youth Education Coordinator, Land Stewardship Coordinator, Regional Collaboration Coordinator, or Sustainable Agriculture Coordinator.
Within your service year you will be able to develop and carry out capacity building projects; educate or train individuals; recruit, train, manage, and support community volunteers engaged in land-based activities; and identify new individuals and groups to participate in education, recreation, or service opportunities centered around land access and conservation. You will also receive extensive professional developments and trainings to better prepare you for the professional world.

These 1,700-hour AmeriCorps positions receive a living allowance and are eligible for health insurance coverage, childcare assistance, federal loan forbearance, an education award, and additional AmeriCorps benefits.
