Crew Leader, Northern Bedrock Historic Preservation Corps
Northernbedrockcorps.org

Lead our crew in an outdoor adventure preserving and repairing historic structures across Minnesota. You’ll work with our operations staff to supervise a crew of 5 crew members and train and work alongside them at project sites. Crew Leaders lead camping and team-building activities, and are the on-the-ground resource for their crew members during each project. Crew Leaders train alongside crew members with preservation professionals while earning a living stipend, educational award and certificate of skill development.

Crew members serve with six others ages 18-25 and camp out in some of the most unique settings in MN. Crew leaders work 8 days on a project site and then alternate 6 days off.

As an AmeriCorps member, Crew Leaders earn a living allowance, take advantage of student loan forbearance and earn an education award. Crew Leaders join us for the full season from June to November. You'll also obtain a certificate of skill development and credentials to carry over into careers in the preservation and trades industry.
By working with us to repair and restore historic buildings, structures and landscapes, we are providing the opportunity to learn real-world skills and open the door to a future career. During and after the program you have access to an advisor network of trades professionals, trade unions, and historic preservation specialists.

Will you join us on our next project?
