Join Our Leadership Team

Idaho Conservation Corps Field Leaders perform many roles and are the key to our program’s success. They understand that being a leader is much more than being a boss. They have the drive, commitment, and mental toughness to carry them through the unexpected challenges that arise at the most inopportune of times; a remote location with bad weather, in the middle of trying to complete a mile of new trail, finish a bridge, or eradicate an invasive species. The position is multi-faceted and demanding, but with opportunity for enormous rewards. Successful Crew Leaders demonstrate high standards, good sense, excellent judgment, and the desire to devote themselves to the crew and program alike. The Crew Leader position requires physical aptitude, mental fortitude, and a high level of comfort in the outdoors.
