Our central office is located in Traverse City, MI and our programs are located around the state. SEEDS seeks three full time AmeriCorps Direct Service members to serve in leadership positions within the SEEDS Youth Conservation Corps.

The Youth Conservation Corps seasonally empowers youth ages 16-24 through service learning projects and development of green collar job skills. This team-based training program is modeled after the Civilian Conservation Corps of the 1930s New Deal. SEEDS Youth Corps teams work on labor-intensive conservation and stewardship projects. During the off season, AmeriCorps members serving with SEEDS Youth Corps will lead K-12 education with area schools focused on ecology, conservation, and stewardship. Youth Corps crew members will add value to their communities, the environment, and themselves through their dedicated service.

Throughout their term of service, crew members will participate in a rigorous program of work, education, and training. Members will complete conservation and stewardship projects including river restoration, park maintenance, community service, trail building, and historical preservation within Northern Michigan. Crew members are responsible for following all rules and guidelines of both AmeriCorps and SEEDS while adding positively to the crew. In the off season, 1700 hour members will lead K-12 programming in the SEEDS After School Programs, Career Tech Centers, and other educational institutions in the area.
