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 and other non-profit organizations. The resource managers serve a mentor role, creating accessible learning opportunities and experiences throughout the individual's term.
Internships run anywhere from 8 to 52 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 $1,300 - $6,300 (depending on the length of their service).
