Chesapeake Conservation & Climate Corps
Little Portion Farm is seeking interested applicants for the Chesapeake Conservation and Climate Corps, a one-year term of stipend-supported service ($31,200 stipend) that places young adults (ages 18-25) with nonprofits or government agencies to serve full-time in the environmental field.
We are seeking a Corps Member to assist in a wide range of farm activities, including planting, preparing beds, harvesting and more, for an immersive experience in small-scale sustainable agriculture. The Corps Member will receive training in all aspects of our no-till, chemical-free, diversified agricultural system. There will also be opportunities, if desired, for the Corps Member to assist with or help lead some of our volunteer programs, education efforts, social and outreach events, and social media and website content.
The Corps Member will be part of a larger cohort of around 50 members serving at nonprofit organizations and government agencies through the Chesapeake Bay region. These young professionals will receive experience managing projects and programs, leadership and professional development training, mentorship, a support network of young professionals, and other skill-building opportunities including networking and grant writing.
Applications for the Chesapeake Conservation and Climate Corps must be submitted through the Chesapeake Bay Trust’s online system by March 7, 2024 at 4:00 pm. The year of service begins on August 15, 2024.
