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).
