COVID-19 Update: Dear Applicants and Potential Participants,

Beginning January 1, 2023 Conservation Legacy will no longer require COVID-19 vaccination for members, staff or volunteers.

COVID-19 vaccinations are still highly recommended and encouraged by the organization, and we will closely monitor the national picture as well as our own trends and protocols as we continue to navigate the pandemic.

In Service,

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).
