The Chesapeake Bay Trust is excited to announce that we are seeking qualified contractors to deliver a Professional Development training on resume development, cover letter writing, and other related career readiness content to support the transition for a cohort of young environmental professionals in the Chesapeake Conservation Corps program. The Corps is a one-year term of paid service that places young adults (ages 18-25) with nonprofits or government agencies to work fulltime in the environmental field. Throughout the year Corps Members receive experience, training, mentorship, a support network of young professionals.

The Professional Development training would occur in early 2022 for the 2021-22 cohort, but contingent upon funding availability services may be extended to support an additional two years of training work.

Deadline for proposals is Thursday, May 6, 2021 at 4:00 PM EST.
