The Sierra Institute for Community and Environment (Sierra Institute) is committed to uplifting the community through devoted staff, meaningful work, and positive growth. All staff training is paid. Sierra Institute has been expanding its workforce and there are constantly new opportunities for those who wish to grow and develop as leaders in natural resource stewardship!
Sierra Institute’s P-CREW Youth Corps is an immersive, five-week, experiential work opportunity designed to offer employment on Northern California’s public lands to youth from rural and urban areas around the state. In 2023, P-CREW Youth Corps will field four 14-person youth corps crews to complete conservation projects such as: trail maintenance and building, invasive species removal, aspen and meadow restoration, and hazardous fuels reduction. Crews will spend their weekends playing in the mountains through activities like hiking, backpacking, climbing, stand up paddle boarding, swimming, and more!
P-CREW is uniquely capable of providing a formative and unforgettable experience for youth through immersion in the culture and communities of the Sierra Nevada’s largest watershed. Students will forge unexpectedly strong friendships, develop leadership and job skills, explore diverse and wild forests, and build pride and confidence in themselves. We purposefully design crews to be balanced across geographies and gender identities to foster opportunities for exposure to a variety of backgrounds, stories, and cultures among crewmates.
The Assistant Field Coordinator is integral to the success of P-CREW. The Assistant Field Coordinator reports directly to the P-CREW Program Coordinator and works closely with all field and office staff. This position provides critical support to the program by assisting with coordination, logistics, and administration of four youth crews.

High season: The Assistant Field Coordinator acts as a liaison between field staff and office support staff. Weekly duties include: facilitating efficient meal planning and shopping for crews; resupplying food and equipment to crews in the field; preparing and organizing weekly paperwork; organizing and tracking each crew’s project accomplishments; taking photos and videos of crews; developing the publication of social media content; provide educational lessons and technical project support to the crews; and provide relief to the crew leaders when needed or if there is an emergency.
Post season: The Assistant Field Coordinator supports P-CREW staff with the wrap of the season including creating final summaries of project accomplishments; gear and tool maintenance and inventory; grant writing and research; development of postseason social media content; organizing paperwork; reviewing crew member and crew leader evaluations; and more.
