Positions offered by Host Organizations are in the fields of environmental restoration, community engagement, climate change, environmental education, sustainable agriculture, energy conservation, and forestry. The initiative is supported by the Trust; the State of Maryland; and BGE, an Exelon Company.

The Trust seeks qualified contractors to provide outreach and technical assistance to Corps Member applicants, especially young adults from fenceline communities and/or communities disproportionately impacted by climate change.  Offerors must outline in detail their ability to increase awareness of and engagement in the Trust’s Chesapeake Conservation and Climate Corps (Corps) and provide support for eligible young adults through the application process and their potential placement with the Corps.
