AmeriCorps FEMA Corps Team Leader, BTT Gateway Job ID 6854
AmeriCorps NCCC (National Civilian Community Corps) is a residential national service program for young men and women; Corps Members are all between the ages of 18 and 24, though there is no age limit for Team Leaders. For 10 months, members serve on teams to meet urgent community needs in disaster relief, the environment, energy conservation, infrastructure improvement, and urban and rural development. Teams work on projects throughout the country with non-profit programs, state and local agencies, and other community and faith-based groups. The recently developed FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) Corps is an extension of the NCCC program where members focus their 10 months specifically on emergency management and disaster preparedness, recovery, and response.
Members are stationed at one of five campuses, located in Denver, CO, Sacramento, CA, Perry Point, MD, Vicksburg, MS, and Vinton, IA. During the 10 month term of service, FEMA Corps members complete three projects lasting 10-11 weeks in partnership with FEMA offices and may be deployed to a disaster should one occur. Unlike the traditional track of NCCC, these assignments may or may not be within the region of the campus with which they are assigned.
The Team Leader coordinates the activities of 10-12 Corps Members on a series of service projects generally lasting 10 to 11 weeks each. He/She serves as a role model, facilitator, educator, and safety manager while encouraging high standards for all team members. The Team Leader serves as a liaison between the campus and project sponsor (the FEMA office), and reports directly to a Unit Leader. Above all, the Team Leader encourages a positive, safe and productive service environment for the members on his/her team.
