The Field Team Leader position

Project Sponsor: Northwest Service Academy-MAC Mt Adams Center www.northwestserviceacademy.org

Position Title: Field Team Leader, AmeriCorps Position, Trout Lake WA

Service Dates: February 22, 2009 - November 22, 2010

Position Summary: The Field Team Leader position is often described as the hardest job you will ever love. It requires the ability to work well with people, the aptitude to learn and teach new skills and the willingness to put the needs of the group ahead of your own. The Mt. Adams Center (MAC) employs a co-leader model with 2 leaders on every 6-person team. Leaders are responsible for creating a strong and collaborative team that can complete projects in a safe and efficient manner.

Leaders must be able to communicate well and be capable of creating respectful relationships with peers. Given that teams live and work together for the duration of the season, Leaders must also be able to uphold the standards of the program at all times and separate their personal lives from the professional.

This position is an opportunity for personal and professional growth. The initial 3 months of the program is dedicated to training and preparation for the main project season (Jun-Oct). Leaders participate in trainings on Wilderness Advanced First Aid, defensive driving, outdoor living skills, team management and professional communication. 6 weeks of the training will be spent in California gaining trail construction and maintenance skills. By the end of training, Leaders will be assigned a partner and a project site for the season. The next 6 months of service include member training, implementing projects and providing oversight. During this period the teams will operate independently from the MAC.
