AmeriCorps NCCC seeks team leaders to provide experience and leadership to corps members in both our NCCC and FEMA Corps programs as they work to strengthen communities. Team leaders coordinate the activities of 8-12 corps members per team.
We are looking for dedicated team leaders who are capable and willing to engage our teams of diverse young people in service benefiting communities across America—team leaders who can promote a culture of learning and “getting things done” through teamwork. It is crucial for our team leaders, who act as role models, mentors, and coaches, to recognize that diversity extends beyond ethnicity, race, socioeconomic status, age, and gender, but also includes values, perception, ideology, and experience. Corps members can come from highly advantaged or highly disadvantaged circumstances. By acknowledging the significance and value in our differences, team leaders will encourage a team dynamic that is truly invested in learning from each other and engaged in the communities they serve.
Team leaders build a cohesive team from diverse individuals through promoting a culture of safety, respect, flexibility, and openness. A team that appreciates the value that each individual corps member contributes will not only work well together to accomplish project needs, but inspire the communities they serve to work together to do the same.
