For more than a decade, our service programs have sought to connect youth and young adults to conservation through environmental education, disaster response, trail building and maintenance, and diversity and equity support to other nonprofits. By participating in service programs offered by CTNC and our partners, young people are able to be part of the movement to build resilient, just communities across North Carolina. These programs establish a lifelong appreciation for our state’s natural and cultural resources and an understanding of the critical benefits that land and water conservation provides. CTNC is proud to deliver quality service programs in collaboration with AmeriCorps, Conservation Legacy, and state and local community partners. Our programs offer paid positions to North Carolina’s youth and young adults while building pathways to conservation careers, creating opportunities to give back to local communities through service and volunteerism, and cultivating a commitment to being stewards of our land and water for years to come. What does Resilience Corps NC do? Operated by Conservation Trust for North Carolina, Resilience Corps NC, seeks to address our state’s changing climate by expanding access to environmental education, increasing eco-literacy, promoting disaster resiliency, delivering equitable programming, and utilizing communities to identify and address climate-related issues. What is AmeriCorps? AmeriCorps is a bridge builder, a force multiplier, a way to connect individuals and organizations to support their communities in tackling challenges. AmeriCorps programs across the country address a variety of community needs like education, economic opportunity, environmental stewardship, healthy futures, disaster response, and veteran & military family services.
