The program places college graduates for a 10-month term of full-time volunteer service with conservation organizations across Michigan. Through service Huron Pines AmeriCorps members receive real‐world experience, networking and training opportunities, a living stipend, health coverage and, upon completing their service, an education award to pursue advanced degrees or courses. Huron Pines AmeriCorps is a program of Huron Pines and is supported in part by the Corporation for National and Community Service, Michigan Community Service Commission, Huron Pines and contributions from host sites.
Hosting a Huron Pines AmeriCorps member provides tremendous value for our host sites and due to high demand, selection of host sites is a competitive process. Host sites for each year are selected based on the merit of their application and the level of impact members would have on natural resource conservation in Michigan.
