The Senior Crew Leader’s (SCL) responsibilities will include training of Field and Expedition Leaders, field visitation and logistical support to help ensure the successful completion of MCC projects and programming, and logistical support to ensure regional operations run smoothly. The SCL, under the supervision of the Regional Program Manager or Youth Program Manager respectively, works with all regional staff and must maintain communication between the office and the field. The SCL helps ensure that MCC policies and procedures are followed by all members and leaders while establishing and maintaining a good working relationship with project partners. The SCL will be called upon to lead or join an existing crew when necessary. The SCL is an AmeriCorps member and is entitled to the benefit package offered to all AmeriCorps members. This is not a 9-5 job, rather a commitment to service and an experience where long hours and extended time away from your home base are to be expected. Serving as a SCL at MCC means having passion for service to others, for wild lands and wild places, for personal growth, or for any number of MCC’s values. SCLs must be self-motivated and flexible in order to meet the changing needs of the position.
Senior Crew Leaders understand that commitment, flexibility and self-motivation are integral to maintaining the high expectations placed upon them. They use their training, experience and commitment to facilitate their crew’s development. They are creative in their approach to problem solving and motivating others, and are invested in the idea that their personal development and growth as a leader are most fully realized when used in service to their crews, their communities and the environment.
