Watershed/Environmental Science AmeriCorps Position

Hello ,

The Sierra Nevada Alliance is recruiting applicants to become AmeriCorps Members in the Sierra Nevada AmeriCorps Partnership (SNAP) for the 2014-15 program, and we thought the students in your program would be an excellent match. For more information about the SNAP Program, please click here to visit our website.

SNAP AmeriCorps Members serve 11 months with a Sierra Nevada, California nonprofit or agency to conduct and lead projects on watershed restoration, ecological monitoring, and environmental education. This is a unique opportunity for students to gain valuable experience in environmental organizations and agencies while working on key environmental issues facing communities in the Sierra Nevada.

We request your assistance in spreading information about our program to interested applicants by:

  1. Posting this announcement on job boards or listserves your program has related to employment/internships.
  2. Forwarding the program recruitment email piece below to interested students and relevant student clubs.  
  3. Talking about the program directly with specific students who you think would be good applicants.
  4. Sending the entire email to other staff or faculty in related fields and asking them to help by sending the email to students and making the announcement in their classes.

We thank you for your most invaluable time, support, and attention.  Please let me know if you have any questions about the SNAP program, and feel free to forward any interested individuals on to me.
