COVID-19 Update: Dear Applicants and Potential Participants,
Our crews and individual placements have always been the foundation and driving force of this organization. The safety of our participants has always been our utmost priority. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 situation, we have activated an Incident Response Team and are working around the clock to monitor and manage the effects of the outbreak. Conservation Legacy and its programs are strictly following guidelines provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and local public health agencies. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your program or recruitment staff.
We urge everyone to follow CDC and WHO protocols to limit the spread of the virus. We hope that you and your families are well.

Individual Placements Opportunities
Southwest Conservation Corps' Individual Placements Program pairs college students, recent graduates, and young adults with resource managers and places them within federal agencies. The resource managers serve a mentor role, creating accessible learning opportunities and experiences throughout the intern's term.
Internships run anywhere from 8 to 43 weeks in duration 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 (depending on the length of their service).
