Individual Placements (Internship) Program

Southwest Conservation Corps' Internship Program pairs college students and recent graduates with public and private resource managers and places them within federal agencies, local non-profit organizations, and small local farms focusing on sustainable agriculture. 

Typically eight to twenty weeks in duration, interns will serve at locations throughout Colorado and New Mexico.   Each internship offers a unique opportunity for immersive training, career development, and positive impact--for both the intern, and the communities they serve. Upon successful completion of their term, interns participating as Americorps Members receive an education award totaling $1,200 - $5,800.
