Youth Corps Field Coordinator

The employee in this position will provide leadership and support for 4-5 crews of approximately 10-12 youth (Ages 11-18) for crews operating on a 24/7 model and day crews. The position can be broken down into four main segments: pre-season, crew leader training, the field season, and Yampa Valley Science School. Once the field season starts, field coordinators generally split time 20/80 between the office and the field. Workload changes greatly throughout the season and hours may vary dramatically depending on the crews' needs and locations. Schedules are flexible and require adaptability alongside self-motivation and the ability to work independently.
