Vermont Youth Conservation Corps’ Food and Farm Program is Hiring

The Farm @ VYCC is hiring for several AmeriCorps positions! 
 
The Vermont Youth Conservation Corps’ Food and Farm Program is a dynamic youthdevelopment, diversified agriculture and food security initiative. We believe in the power that food has to connect us to the land, our community, and each other. We engage young people in organic farming and culinary education on our historic 400-acre campus in 
Richmond, Vermont where we grow organically certified vegetables and pasture-raised chickens that are distributed to more than 400 families through our 
nationally recognized Health Care Share program. 
 
Project Leads (7 positions) 
 
Project Leads serve on the farm from freezing March mornings, through sweaty July days, until crisp October evenings. They serve out in the fields, in 
greenhouses, work with livestock, and jump in to problem solve the daily challenges of the farm. Project Leads bring their adaptability, commitment, 
and passion for food & farming to the farm program. 
 
Crew Leaders (7 positions; 5 youth crew leaders and 2 production crew leaders) 
 
Farm Crew Leaders’ responsibilities shift across the season. Spring is for learning and doing: tending crops in greenhouses and planting the fields; working with volunteers. In summer, they lead either a youth or young adult crew. In fall, they harvest mountains of vegetables in support of Health Care Share program. There are two types of Crew Leader positions- leading a crew of youth or young adults. Regardless of age, crews work in all areas of thefarm; they plant and harvest, care for livestock, and explore how to cook with what they’ve grown.

Winter Term 2022 Wetland Mapping Internship at VT Dept. of Environmental Conservation

Spend your Winter Term helping the State of Vermont cataloguing and mapping valuable wetland ecosystems and get Middlebury academic credit while doing it. The internship will focus on updating Geographical Information Systems (GIS) mapping products, as well as providing assistance in the form of data management. In this internship the individual will learn how to identify wetlands remotely, digitize and attribute wetlands in ArcGIS, and how integral mapping is to the success of wetland protection. Tasks will focus on developing and improving wetland mapping products in the Esri ArcPro environment and include:

  • digitizing and coding historic wetland delineations,
  • editing existing wetland datasets,
  • learning how to map wetlands remotely via “heads up digitizing”

The intern will have the support of professionals with mapping experience who will provide training in aerial interpretation and other mapping tools. At the end of the internship, mapping efforts will be reviewed and then published publicly online to the VT Natural Resources Atlas

Super Seniors: Two Positions at Vital Communities Focusing on Housing & Transportation

This just in from Middlebury alum, Sarah Brock ’11, Program Director, Climate, Energy, Transportation:

We’ve got two openings on our program team here at Vital Communities, and looking for passionate, community-minded folks. This is a team hire, and we are open to bringing on someone who is passionate about community-based solutions, even with less experience. Could be a good fit for a recent grad who is excited about working on many intersecting issues. Our team is increasingly looking at all our work with a lens of climate and community resilience.

Vital Communities, a regional nonprofit located in White River Junction, VT, seeks two full time additions to our Housing and Transportation Team to develop and implement integrated, community-based projects that work toward affordable, safe, efficient, reliable, and equitable transportation and housing in the Upper Connecticut River Valley. Successful candidates will have a passion for working collaboratively with community members, volunteers, and peer organizations. Qualifications include excellent project management, communication, and collaboration skills, and an understanding of transportation and home creation as complex, dynamic systems. 

Full job description at vitalcommunities.org/join-our-team. Email resume and cover letter to hr@vitalcommunities.org. Vital Communities will begin reviewing applications on November 1, 2021. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.  

Seniors: Are you Passionate About the Environment? Join ECO AmeriCorps in VT

I was sent contacted by recent Middlebury alum, Naomi Cutler ’20 who is finishing out her ECO AmeriCorps job at the Middlebury Area Land Trust (MALT). she wrote to tell me “I’m reaching out to let you know that the applications for next year ECO just opened up this past week: https://dec.vermont.gov/administration-innovation/eco. I don’t know how much you know about this program, but it has been a fantastic experience for me so far. Since I really didn’t have a clear picture of what I wanted to do in the environmental field, it has helped me refine both what I want to continue doing, and what I definitely don’t want to do any more. I just wanted to pass it along to you in case you have more seniors who are interested in the environment and are looking for a 1-year position to get their foot in the door.”

To learn more about the MALT position, feel free to reach out to Executive Director, Jamie Brookside Montegue, jamie@maltvt.org.
