The Chesapeake Conservation and Climate Corps (Corps) Program ( is one of the Trust’s flagship programs which promotes and protects the environment by providing young adults with opportunities to gain career skills and become more engaged through meaningful community service. The Corps is a one-year term of paid service that places young adults (ages 18-25) with nonprofits or government agencies to work full-time in the environmental field. Throughout the year this program provides young professionals with experience, leadership and professional development training, mentorship, and a support network of young environmentalists.

The Trust anticipates placing approximately 50 Corps Members beginning on August 15, 2023 and ending on August 14, 2024. The subsequent cohorts in 2024-25 and 2025-26 will likely have similar participant numbers.
