Highly qualified seasonal Crew Leaders, Assistant Crew Leaders, and Camp Coordinators are recruited each year. They may be hired and managed by ATC or by its affiliated clubs or agencies. Applicants must demonstrate responsibility, initiative, and self-motivation. They must be able to work both independently with minimal supervision and cooperatively as a member of a team. Crew staff applicants should demonstrate the interest and ability to contribute to the public-service effort of working on a national scenic trail and to promote volunteerism and membership in ATC and its club affiliates. They should possess the required skills listed in the application and be able to attend required training before the crew’s field season begins.
All positions are seasonal and vary in length. Wages vary according to positions and individual qualifications. The pay is competitive, and some positions include room and board. Crew staff may be able to extend their employment by working for more than one crew. Those interested will need to interview with the administrator for each crew.
