The international corps member position is a 6-month service learning experience with EarthCorps in Seattle, WA, USA. Young environmental leaders from countries outside the United States will join US AmeriCorps members to develop skills in environmental service, community building and leadership.
This is not a classroom or workshop. Corps members spend 80% of their time in the field engaged in environmental restoration projects throughout the Puget Sound region of Washington State. Restoration is very physically demanding and takes place outdoors in all weather conditions.
(40 hours a week, 7:30 am to 5:00 pm) Participants take part in environmental restoration projects, such as invasive plant removal, tree-planting, trail construction, and erosion control. Projects are located throughout Washington State.
