Please bear in mind that corps openings are highly competitive and are targeted to young adults with a demonstrated background in environmental fields and/or who have distinguished themselves in service to our country through dedicated volunteerism, with the armed forces, the Peace Corps, etc.

 

If you are not a permanent resident of the US, or do not have an educational background or hands on experience in a conservation-related field or in service to our country through extensive volunteerism, in the Peace Corps, or in the armed forces, we recommend that you apply for entry level opportunities in our Conservation Volunteer program. More than half ACE Conservation Corps members started with our organization as Conservation Volunteers, excelled in the volunteer capacity, and subsequently applied for promotion to stipended Conservation Corps positions.

 

We heavily prioritize successful graduates of ACE's Conservation Volunteer Program when filling Conservation Corps positions and always prefer to reward with promotions those who have represented themselves, ACE, and our agency project partners well through their efforts.

 

Feel free to contact Drew or Carolyn Getschow with any questions about our Conservation Corps openings.

The voice of our corps members
I am a world away from the shy person I was and much closer to the leader I want to be. Guadalupe Mountains National Park was by far my favorite project during my time with ACE. Those mountains became a home that I will never forget. Amanda McAdams
Overall, I have enjoyed every aspect of ACE. I have met some awesome and interesting people from all over the world. I have learned extensive amounts of skills relating to trail building and using a chainsaw. I have travelled all over the southwest and worked in the most beautiful parks that America has to offer. I am thankful to ACE for helping grow as a person, team member, and worker. Charlie Reidinger
