SECC empowering young adults to cultivate compassion, responsibility, and grit through community service, hard work, and environmental stewardship.
Southeast Conservation Corps (SECC) empowers young people to attain compassion, responsibility and grit through community service, hard work and environmental stewardship. SECC is a local, non-profit, AmeriCorps affiliated organization based out of Chattanooga, TN. SECC selects young adults to complete conservation work projects on public, private and municipal lands throughout the Southeast.

Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve’s Resource Management division preserves the rich archeological sites reflecting of indigenous history dating back over 10,000 years. This preserve also protects significant colonial era sites and Civil War and post-emancipation occupations of African Americans.
The current site of the Fort Caroline Memorial interpretive exhibit, a 2/3 scale model constructed in the 1950’s, is in danger of being submerged from climate change induced sea level rise. The interns will excavate shovel tests to determine if National Register of Historic Places eligible archeological sites are located within the area the fort replica is being moved to. Moving the fort exhibit will allow future generations the ability to learn about the French colonial occupation of the area.
Bachelor’s degree or equivalent in Anthropology with a focus on archeology. At least one archeological field school or equivalent private sector work.
To qualify, you must be between the ages of 18 and 30 and a US citizen that has received a high school diploma or GED.
