Program Co-Directors in Massachusetts and Connecticut
Located in Lowell, MA, TerraCorps is an AmeriCorps affiliated start-up environmental non-profit growing a more equitable ecosystem of people and organizations to protect and steward land for broader good. Working at the intersection of land conservation, sustainable agriculture and food justice, we seek to bridge the gap between the urban, rural and suburban land movements historically segregated by socio-economic divides. Through our generative service, training and partnership model, we cultivate future conservation leaders and offer immediate capacity support to the local organizations they serve.
Program Co-Directors are key staff members in the implementation of the TerraCorps program vision on a state-wide scale. They play a primary role in managing service member experience and partner relationships for our AmeriCorps program. We are looking to add capacity to our Massachusetts team, while the Program Co-Directors in Connecticut will work to launch and sustain a new program in that state. Program Co-Directors will oversee between 20-48 Members and 15-25 Service Site Partners depending on the state. PCDs have the following key areas of accountability:
· Managing productive relationships with TerraCorps Service Site partners.
