A Senior Youth Crew Leader has the opportunity to not only impact and interact with youth, but also to mentor and train other Youth Crew Leaders. Throughout the Leadership Development Program, the SYCL will provide vital support to the Youth Program Manager and the rest of the staff team, assisting in technical and fundamental trainings required for the summer field season. The SYCL can also expect to assist with administrative tasks and the recruitment and hiring of the youth members. Throughout the summer the Senior Youth Crew Leader will continue supporting and mentoring the Youth Crew Leaders and Youth Crew Members with field visits and technical assistance on projects. This is a unique and dynamic position where one can grow individually and professionally while working on independent tasks and supporting staff, leaders, and members.
The design of this position is to remain flexible in the changing atmosphere of work. Whether it’s 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.
