This year, Greenagers will host two crews in Berkshire County and one crew in Columbia County, NY. Berkshire County Crews comprise the Community Crew (mostly trail and some farm work on local trails and farms) and the Greenagers Appalachian Trail Crew (work done on local sections of the AT under contract with the National Parks Service). Details about each crew are provided below. Applications are due by May 10th. The work is intense and challenging, but the reward is great. Crew members will make a significant impact to local trails and farms, will learn a whole ton, and will become more connected to the community and landscape. Fun is had, too!
No prior experience is needed – just a desire to work, a willingness to learn, and a great attitude no matter what.
Community Crew: 8 crew members and one crew leader work Monday – Thursday, 32 hours/week, July 1st to August 22nd. Salary: $8.50-$9.50/hour before withholdings. Trails and conservation land we will work on this year: Housatonic River Walk, Berkshire Natural Resources Council, Mt. Hunger Preservation, Myrin Instistute, plus two days on a local farm.
Greenagers Appalachian Trail Crew: 8 crew members and one crew leader work Monday – Friday, 40 hours/week, July 1st to August 2nd. Salary: $8.50 – $9.50/hour before withholdings. All work happens on Massachusetts and Connecticut sections of the Appalachian Trail. Two weeks of day projects and two weeks of on-site camping (weekends off).
All crew members will participate in daily reading and journaling exercises and will take part in financial literacy and resume writing workshops.
