The success of young people is best achieved by working in partnership with others who share our values. Outdoor service provides measureable achievements that help young people realize their profound ability to make a difference as citizens, while also nurturing a deep connection to the natural world. Our work would not be possible without extensive collaboration with a group of over 500 diverse partners—government agencies, other nonprofits, schools, foundations—to recruit and engage corps members in hands-on service that keep our public lands safe, healthy, and accessible. MCC’s partners provide invaluable support, expertise, mentorship, and opportunities to MCC Corps Members to improve the environment and to realize their ability to improve the world.
Big Sky Watershed Corps Host Sites
Interested in hosting a BSWC member? BSWC host sites include watershed groups, conservation districts, tribal offices, Federal/State agencies and other community-based conservation organizations across Montana. Host sites gain the assistance of a highly motivated college graduate to assist with project implementation and program capacity building. The BSWC program covers all employer admin aspects including payroll and worker's comp but host sites make the final selection of which member(s) will serve with them.
Host Site organizations host a member(s) for 10.5 months and are required to provide a minimum of 10 hours a week of supervision to the member. Host site projects must help to meet core programmatic goals of watershed health and protection, education and outreach, member development and volunteer generation. Host sites that can offer projects that meet all 4 goals will be more competitive in the selection process for limited slots.
Qualified host site organizations in Montana are invited to submit a competitive application to host a Big Sky Watershed Corps AmeriCorps member to BSWC@macdnet.org or firstname.lastname@example.org. For questions regarding the program or the application contact Bryan Wilson at email@example.com or 406-587-4475.
