A Senior Crew Leader’s term of service provides the opportunity to explore different roles and responsibilities within the organization. During the Leadership Development Program the Senior Crew Leader supports regional staff in training Field and Youth Crew Leaders with the technical and fundamental skills required for their field season. Throughout the summer and fall the Senior Crew Leader is there to continue to support leaders as they reach project goals, and mentor crew members through the program. It is a unique position where one can grow individually and professionally while working on independent tasks and supporting staff.
The design of this position is to remain flexible in the changing atmosphere of work. Whether it’s clearing downed trees with a chainsaw, coordinating with other groups for volunteer opportunities, building a new trail in the deep wilderness, assisting with regional inventory, teaching a group of youth during an afterschool program or restoring sage grouse habitat on the eastern plains; this leader completes projects of all sorts. Joining MCC is not a job – it’s a serious commitment to service and an opportunity to immerse oneself in a diverse experience.
