Program Features

Each year, we select 30 applicants as Corps Members to the NYC Parks Fellowship and Conservation Corps Program. The program is a paid, 40-week public service commitment that features professional placements throughout the agency, on-the-job training and mentoring that will include a multi-day orientation to divisions at Parks, ongoing career-development seminars, and service projects. The fellowship year starts on  Monday, September 8, 2014 and ends Friday, June 12, 2015. We are an Equal Opportunity Employer.   

Corps Members Projects

Corps Members will have the opportunity to work on an administrative or field-based project such as: GIS mapping of natural areas, developing environmental education and recreational programs for New Yorkers of all ages, restoring natural areas damaged by Hurricane Sandy, and more. These long-term placements will provide valuable work experience, exposing participants to a diverse array of responsibilities within NYC Parks. Fellows will also spend one month of the program outside of their placement working on a group project.
