Based in Massachusetts, TerraCorps is expanding to Connecticut and plans to start placing AmeriCorps members with non-profit partners beginning in August 2020.  

What:  TerraCorps Info Session
When:  May 6, 2019, 1-3pm

Read about the program, including participation criteria >>

Organizations that partner with TerraCorps host one or more TerraCorps member(s) at their organizations, who will focus full-time for 11 months (1,700 hours) on projects that support the host organization’s mission and the needs of the community it serves.  Projects may relate to stewardship, community engagement, youth education, volunteer management, and systems improvement. (Please note that this program is different from the AmeriCorps NCCC program that stations teams of 8-10 people with sponsors for short periods of time.)

At this info session, the TerraCorps team will tell us how the program works, answer your questions, and gauge interest in establishing a network of partner organizations.   

If you have any questions, please contact CLCC Executive Director Amy Blaymore Paterson at abpaterson@ctconservation.org or at (860) 852-5512
