CLEVELAND, SC (FOX Carolina) – It’s an exciting new series of projects bringing at least 20 miles of new trails to the northern Greenville County area, and it’s set to get underway in the new year.
Are you looking for a life-changing experience serving South Carolina’s public lands? The Palmetto Conservation Corps is hiring members to serve for 5.5 months, starting work as soon as possible. Our AmeriCorps program provides training in trail building, wilderness first aid, leave no trace ethics, environmental stewardship, and disaster response. Corps members gain professional skills in leadership, teamwork, conflict resolution, and problem-solving while also networking with seasoned professionals in the field of conservation and land management.
Does it sound too good to be true; are you wondering if the program is as beneficial as we say it is? Numbers speak for themselves- 100% of this year’s Fall Crew chose to extend their service into another term.
When asked what was gained from serving with the Palmetto Conservation Corps, one member said the following:
“The Corps has given me skills, certifications, and experiences that will undoubtedly help me in the job market once I complete my term of service. However, the crewmates I serve alongside and the supervisors I learn from have become the best part of my experience. I have gained friends and mentors that will last a lifetime.”
