Our work with Serve Wyoming, 21st Century Conservation Service Corps, AmeriCorps, Corps Network makes our program possible.
Serve Wyoming is Wyoming’s state AmeriCorps commission and as program officer Nurieh Glasgow has been working with the WCC for years. We simply could not be as smooth of a program without her. Serve Wyoming, as the name indicates, helps connect folks all over the state to serve their communities big or small. They work with: Big Brothers Big Sisters, disability programs, Feeding Laramie Valley and other food programs, Wyoming Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault (WCADUSA), public libraries, and many more. Their partnership is crucial to us at the WCC and to Wyoming as a whole.
21st Century Conservation Service Corps (21CSC) is an organization dedicated to finding funding for conservation corps all over the country. Beyond advocacy, 21CSC is able to put our organization into a pool of available corps in effort to find us more projects and merit.
Since the program’s founding in 1994, more than 900,000 AmeriCorps members have contributed more than 1.2 billion hours in service across America while tackling pressing problems and mobilizing millions of volunteers for the organizations they serve.
AmeriCorps is an integral part of our program affording us scholarship and education awards. These education awards are available to each members upon the completion of their service and can only be used to further each member’s education. We are proud to have our AmeriCorps patch on our clothing and personal protective equipment.
The Corps Network has helped up rally members and leader through their job board as well as recommendation. This organization is the hub and center for many conservation or service corps around the country as an adviser, conference host, and platform for other corps to communicate with one another.
These partnerships create the bedrock on which the WCC is built. Through their support, leadership, and dedication to the work we all do we’ve created a network throughout Wyoming of incredible projects and partnerships that allow us to serve public lands to our greatest ability.
