Seeking Applicants to Serve as AmeriCorps Members

The North Platte Natural Resources District (NRD) is excited to announce a new partnership with the Nebraska Conservation Education Fund (NCEF) and AmeriCorps to help educate our constituents on the importance of conservation and engaging adults in public service.     

“We are very excited to partner with the Nebraska Conservation Education Fund and AmeriCorps on what is the first of its kind partnerships in Nebraska.  The service that these members will provide will help us to establish one program and reinvigorate another program here at the NRD and can serve as a recruitment tool for future talent to join our team permanently,” North Platte NRD General Manager, John Berge said.

The partnerships will be providing two AmeriCorps Members to lead NCEF’s Common Ground Program in the Nebraska Panhandle. The purpose of the Common Ground Program is to build a statewide infrastructure of Nebraskans who care deeply about conservation and who are knowledgeable about how to manage Nebraska’s natural resources. AmeriCorps Members will be responsible for leading this work in the Panhandle. This position provides an excellent opportunity to learn management skills and take leadership in a new, innovative program.

“We are looking forward to partnering with the North Platte NRD on this AmeriCorps program. Our mission is to build a coalition of Nebraskans who aim to protect our natural resources and ensure that we have a secure and prosperous future, and the North Platte NRD does great work in conservation. We are excited to be working with the NRD to get the Common Ground Program running in the Nebraska Panhandle”, said Chelsea Johnson, Deputy Director of Nebraska Conservation Education Fund.

The partnership is currently looking for applicants for the two AmeriCorp positions.  Interested parties can go to the North Platte NRD’s website, www.npnrd.org, for a job description and send resumes to the North Platte NRD, P.O. Box 280, Scottsbluff, NE  69363 or to chelsea.johnson@nlcv.org to apply.
