Southwest Conservation Corps

Resource Management Apprenticeship Program (RMAP)

RMAP connects regional college students and recent graduates with resource managers to gain hands-on knowledge and skills to prepare them for a career in resource management.

Southwest Conservation Corps is partnering with Mountain Studies Institute to manage a rigorous, paid, 10-week career-building apprenticeship program that offers an opportunity to learn from professionals in the field, build skills, and network while contributing to relevant projects. Each student will be paired with a mentor for a nine-week internship and participate in a one-week orientation as well as a final presentation at the end of the program. Students learn methods used by resource management professionals and community planners and contribute to real-world projects.
