The Conservation Leadership Development Program (CLDP) creates rigorous entry-level opportunities for young professionals that want to commit to a career in conservation. Participants are placed at an environmental organization for about 11 months, where they assist with projects that equip them with skills and leadership opportunities to move ahead in their career. In addition to gaining valuable insight in the conservation field, participants also receive a living allowance and an AmeriCorps Education Award upon successful completion.
This program is best suited for youth aged 17 and above. Applicants must be comfortable in outdoor environments, and be able to perform physically demanding duties.
Program Dates: October 2019 - August 2020 (approximately 11 months). Exact start and end dates to be determined.
