@Ashley Lohr, I'm in a year-long SCA/AmeriCorps position in Eastern NC through August. If you are in southern/eastern VA we might not be too far apart.

Anyone serving in VA for SCA/AmeriCorps this summer??

Comment by Claudia Hartley on March 6, 2014 at 11:21pm

Similar to Megan, I'm wondering if any one else is or will be serving in Puerto Rico? I'll be in El Yunque National Forest 3/31/14-2/8/15, holler if you want to connect!

Alumni and others! If you are 18-34, apply TODAY for this leadership opportunity with the National Parks Conservation Association. Application looks easy!

Must be able to serve for two years and travel (expenses paid).

There will be accepting additional candidates later in the year, so keep them in mind.

Hi All,I am wondering if there are any other sca americorps interns serving here on O'ahu this season?
