Grants to Maryland nonprofit organizations, government agencies, faith-based organizations, community associations, groups, and IHEs to provide professional development opportunities for young adults related to the environment. The purpose of this program is to promote and protect the environment by providing young adults with opportunities to gain career skills and become more engaged through meaningful community service.
The Chesapeake Conservation Corps Program is designed to provide young adults with a professional experience in the environmental field, develop valuable career skills, and advance the influx of new leaders working to improve the health of communities and natural resource throughout the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
The Chesapeake Bay Trust anticipates placing 30-35 Corps Members with nonprofit organizations and government agencies throughout Maryland and the Chesapeake Bay to work full-time for a paid year of service.
The goals of the Corps are to:
1) Prepare and empower young adults for careers and leadership in the green workforce;
2) Promote, restore, and protect the health of the natural resources and communities throughout the Chesapeake Bay watershed;
3) Increase the impact and reach of organizations advancing practices and solutions for addressing issues impacting the health of the environment and local communities; and
4) Increase the diversity and influx of young talent into the green workforce across the Chesapeake Bay region.
The Trust is committed to the advancement of diversity and inclusion in its award-making and environmental work. As a result, the Trust strongly encourages Corps Member applications from under-engaged groups within the environmental movement and applications from Host Organizations that are based-in and/or partner with communities that are traditionally under-engaged, such as communities of color.
