The Chesapeake Bay Trust is requesting proposals for services to develop and implement an overnight (2-day) environmental leadership training in the fall of 2018 for participants in the Chesapeake Conservation Corps Program.

The Corps Program places young adults (18-25) with nonprofit organizations and government agencies for a stipend-supported year of service in the environmental field. Throughout the year, the Corps Program provides hands-on professional and leadership experience through on-the-ground work leading and assisting with projects and programs with their host sites, extensive trainings facilitated by the Trust, and other service-learning opportunities including grant writing. The initiative as a whole is supported by the Trust; BGE, an Exelon Company; the National Park Service; and the state of Maryland. The Chesapeake Bay Trust anticipates placing between 35-40 Corps Members beginning on August 21, 2018 and ending on August 20, 2019.

Deadline: Thursday, June 28, 2018 at 4pm.
