Veterans Fire Corps
This program has helped me find the sense of purpose I lost after exiting the Marine Corps; it’s given me the foot in the door I was looking for. This is the kind of work that fills you with that sense of pride again"
Conservation Corps Crews
My time with the Southeast Conservation Corps and Americorps has been a literal life-changing experience that continues to shape who I am and what I do."
So far, each job we've had has exceeded our partner's expectations. In Tumacacori, they were expecting us to pull invasive species and water Cottonwood trees. Little did they know we would complete those tasks in two days with four work days to spare."
I have worked throughout Mesa Verde National Park. My highlights have been collaborative projects and having the freedom to be outside whenever I wanted. I believe this experience has built upon the skills I already possess while giving me new skills that can be used for a wide array of careers."
