AmeriCorps NCCC FEMA Corps Member, BTT Gateway Job ID 6853

Are you interested in traveling the country and earning money for school while helping communities in need? If so, AmeriCorps NCCC and FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) Corps may be for you. 

AmeriCorps NCCC (National Civilian Community Corps) is a residential national service program for men and women between the ages of 18 and 24. For 10 months, members serve on teams to meet urgent community needs in disaster relief, the environment, energy conservation, infrastructure improvement, and urban and rural development. Teams work on projects throughout the country with non-profit programs, state and local agencies, and other community and faith-based groups. The recently developed FEMA Corps is an extension of the NCCC program where members focus their 10 months specifically on emergency management and disaster preparedness, recovery, and response. 

Members are stationed at one of five campuses, located in Denver, CO, Sacramento, CA, Baltimore, MD, Vicksburg, MS, and Vinton, IA. During the 10 month term of service, FEMA Corps members complete three projects lasting 10-11 weeks in partnership with FEMA offices and may be deployed to a disaster should one occur. Unlike the traditional track of NCCC, these assignments may or may not be within the region of the campus with which they are assigned.
