The SCA is a national non-profit changing lives through hands-on conservation work in the outdoors. Our talented program participants protect and restore national parks, marine sanctuaries, cultural landmarks and community green spaces at various locations across the country. After a summer working with the SCA, program participants emerge with increased environmental awareness, social responsibility and leadership skills.

We are looking for Field Leaders to manage and mentor junior members working outdoors at sites in various states. Help lead the way to a sustainable future by leading young people working on conservation service projects.

You won’t just supervise people. Field Leaders are outdoor professionals who make important decisions daily regarding the safety and well-being of our crew members. Along the way, you’ll gain experience and expertise in trail building, habitat restoration, fire management and outreach to park visitors.

Here’s a quick look at what our Field Leaders do:

  • Act as a Crew Supervisor, by facilitating teamwork, managing field-based tasks, and guiding crew dynamics
  • Serve as an Advisor, by training members in technical conservation work skills, mentoring personal and professional development, and teaching environmental stewardship
  • Act as a Project Manager, by communicating with agency park partners, ensuring successful and timely completion of work projects, and upholding a positive representation of SCA
  • Perform tasks as a Program Administrator, by organizing logistics, completing documentation, managing a budget, and communicating with SCA staff
