Co-owner/manager at Sky Meadow Retreat, Vermont

On 06, Feb 2016 | In Retreat Center, Spring Jobs, Volunteer/ Work Exchange | By Jacqueline

Seeking co-manager/owners for retreat centre and conscious community in Vermont

Sky Meadow Retreat, a unique sole-proprietor business in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom, is looking for several retreat managers and business partners to help establish a worker/owner cooperative. The vision is to form a small community of 3-6 individuals who would live and work at the retreat and organic homestead, own and manage the business as a non-profit cooperative, and lease the land and buildings from the current founder/owner/manager. In coordination with the daily work required to maintain the retreat and farm, owner/managers will be able to utilize the retreat facilities to lead group retreats and/or offer healing services such as massage or counselling.

The retreat hosts small groups of 8-16 people for retreats of 2 days to 2 weeks, as well as individual and couple’s solos focused on personal growth, consciousness, wellness, community, and spirituality. It is located on 120 acres secluded at the end of a road in the small town of Stannard, Vermont on a 150 year old homestead, and has been operating since 1999. The primary building is a large newly renovated barn, and the 120 acres of land surrounding it has been gently landscaped to include swimming ponds, open fields, wooded trails, and a hilltop with expansive views of the Green Mountains.

In addition to the retreat, Sky Meadow is a working organic homestead growing much of the food for residents and guests, cutting wood for heat and building materials, and maintaining the buildings and land with primary concern for the integrity of nature and health of the environment. We are a truly holistic retreat centre in that we source many of our needs from this land using our own labour, keeping us connected to the earth and part of our environment. We believe that connecting with the land in this way is an integral part of healing for ourselves and others.

The retreat is currently managed by a single founder/owner/resident with the help of interns who stay anywhere from one month to several years. It is in the beginning stages of becoming a worker-owned cooperative of residents with long-term interest in forming a conscious community supportive of each other’s personal and spiritual growth. It is an ideal situation for a teacher who is looking for a place to lead retreats, a home-based lifestyle integrated with nature, and a supportive residential community in a beautiful quiet setting.

We are looking for people who are ready to step into a management role, working together with the current owner to manifest this vision. You should have some experience with small business, retreat centres, hosting guests and managing interns, as well as rural community living and organic homesteading. Above all you should be dedicated to your own personal growth and awakening, seeking intensive support in the form of intentional community, and passionate about serving the spiritual advancement of humanity.

Compensation includes housing in a beautiful, fully equipped and self-contained private apartment or cabin, access to staple vegetarian foods including all produce grown on the homestead, all utilities including hi-speed internet and free long distance phone, and co-ownership of an established retreat centre business. All net revenue above expenses will be divided among all worker/owners according to the time spent working here. You will also be able to use the retreat facilities to lead your own retreats and offer services to guests, with all tuition or fees going directly to you. Additional compensation may be negotiated depending on your experience, capacities, and financial needs. This is a lifestyle fully supportive of your personal and spiritual development

Job Type:  Retreat center

Location: Stannard, Vermont (near Greensboro and Hardwick), USA

Salary:  Room, board, utilities, profit sharing, and opportunity to use retreat for personal teaching or healing work

Screen Shot 2014-06-17 at 5.30.19 PMAmerican Conservation Experience, a Non-Profit Conservation Corps based in Santa Cruz, CA and South Lake Tahoe, CA is currently hiring energetic, ambitious young adults to participate as AmeriCorps members in a 26-week outdoor skills training program preparing them for careers in resource management with ACE, with other conservation corps, or with public agencies such as the National Park Service, US Forest Service, US Fish and Wildlife, or the Bureau of Land Management.

ACE is currently hiring corps members for a Spring 900-hour AmeriCorps term in 2016:

Start Date: April 10, 2016

End Date: October 8, 2016

A 900-hour, 26-week commitment is required. An early arrival as soon as 4/7 may be required for out-of-state residents who need to complete CA state background checks. All checks must clear before earning AmeriCorps hours.

Position Description: AmeriCorps Professional Development Members will spend just over 6 months training on complex trail construction, forestry, and environmental restoration projects under the guidance of ACE’s most highly skilled staff members. The goal of the position is to accomplish meaningful project work for a variety of agencies while becoming proficient in advanced field techniques such as trail construction, ecological restoration, dry stone masonry, and chainsaw use.

AmeriCorps Professional Development Members will also gain leadership skills while helping to supervise, train, and generally support ACE Conservation Volunteers who are rotated into long-term projects. Leadership and responsibility is also encouraged and expected on off-days and at ACE housing. Each member is required to coordinate one volunteer event (Volunteer Service Project – VSP), recruiting a minimum of ten members of the Santa Cruz/SLT community or a local community near a project site to participate in a volunteer day alongside ACE members or with local residents for the common good.

All ACE field work is physically demanding, often requiring stints in the backcountry and/or extended stays in the field. This position requires hiking, backpacking, camping and cooking outdoors while at front country and wilderness spike camps.

Location: Projects will take place at various locations throughout California. All participants must be flexible and willing to be assigned to a variety of locations and for multiple agencies, wherever community need is the highest. Project assignments vary in length from one week to two months so members will experience a range of opportunities during their six-month term. Long-term project assignments are necessary to extend advanced training to crew members, as well as invest your skills and commitment to see a project through to completion.

Pay: AmeriCorps Professional Development Members receive a living allowance of $6,400 (before tax) for 900 hours of service, spread evenly over the 26-week period. Upon successful completion of the program, members receive an AmeriCorps (Segal) education award of up to $2,850 to be used to pay tuition or student loans. Food and housing (tents or primitive facilities) on project days are provided. Members pay $100/month for ACE off-day housing in Santa Cruz and/or South Lake Tahoe as an automatic deduction from the living allowance.

Qualifications: Professional Development Members must have an established interest in conservation issues and should take joy in tackling challenging situations with a positive mindset. Applicants must be willing to undertake arduous physical work in all types of weather and terrain, and to participate as a team member dedicated to ACE’s mission. ACE’s Professional Development Program is meant as a stepping stone to environmental careers and as a gateway to potential advancement within ACE, not only as an interesting and rewarding way to spend six months working in beautiful locations. Drug users, including users of marijuana, should not consider applying as ACE reserves the right to require drug testing and absolutely abhors the presence of drug users in our program.

Other Requirements:

  • Program is available to US Citizens and Green Card holders only.
  • Eligibility for participation in the AmeriCorps program is contingent upon clearance of state and federal criminal history and sex offender checks.
  • Members must have personal medical insurance for the duration of their participation with ACE.
  • ACE will provide tents to all Members (upon request) but all other camping items such as sturdy boots, sleeping bags, backpacks, and raingear must be provided by successful applicants.
  • Due to fire hazard conditions in ACE, smoking is not permitted in many of the locations we live and work.

Age: 18-25

Training: Potential trainings include technical project and outdoor skills such as retaining wall construction, rock step construction, rock drilling, splitting and shaping, setting up rigging systems, tread and switchback construction, installing water bars, check dams and other erosion control devices, restoration management, chainsaw training, and CPR/First Aid. Our goal is to certify all 900-hour members in Wilderness First Aid and will develop interpersonal and leadership skills while serving as mentors to ACE volunteers and as support for ACE and agency staff. Members will also receive Leave No Trace Training.

Positions open until filled, but are in high demand. Apply now!

Trails and Ecological Restoration Internship – AmeriCorps national service at American Conservation Experience, California

On 11, Aug 2015 | In Autumn Jobs, Conservation, National Parks | By Jacqueline

Summary: American Conservation Experience, a Non-Profit Conservation Corps based in Santa Cruz and South Lake Tahoe, CA is currently hiring energetic, ambitious young adults to participate as AmeriCorps members in a three-month outdoor skills training program preparing them for careers in resource management with ACE, with other conservation corps, or with public agencies such as the National Park Service, US Forest Service, US Fish and Wildlife, or the Bureau of Land Management.

ACE is currently hiring corps members for an AmeriCorps fall term in 2015:

Start Date: September 5, 2015 (An early arrival of 9/3 or 9/4 is required for out-of-state residents)
End Date: November 25, 2015

A 300-hour, 12-week commitment is required. *There may be opportunities available to continue with ACE after the 12-week period for the best performing crew members. Extensions to service are also dependent on available projects in the field and seasonal constraints.

Position Description: Offered as a unique, short-term opportunity to earn significant practical and environmental work experience, AmeriCorps Professional Development Members will spend 3 months participating on complex trail construction, forestry, and environmental restoration projects under the guidance of ACE’s most highly skilled staff members. The goal of the position is to accomplish meaningful project work for a variety of agencies while being exposed to various field techniques such as trail construction and maintenance, ecological restoration, dry stone masonry, and Leave No Trace principles.

AmeriCorps Professional Development Members will also gain leadership skills while helping to supervise, train, and generally support ACE Conservation Volunteers who are rotated into long-term projects. All work is physically demanding, often requiring stints in the backcountry and/or extended stays in the field. This position requires hiking, backpacking, camping and cooking outdoors while at front country and wilderness spike camps.

Location: Projects throughout the 2015 season take place at various locations throughout California, and ACE is sometimes asked to work beyond state borders. All participants must be flexible and willing to be assigned to a variety of locations and for multiple agencies, wherever community need is the highest. Project assignments vary in length from one week to two months so members should expect a range of opportunities during their 12 week term. Flexibility is necessary for locations during days-off, as you will spend days-off in potentially housing locations of Santa Cruz, South Lake Tahoe, and/or time-off on project sites.

Pay: Upon successful completion of the program, members receive an AmeriCorps/EAP education award of up to $1212.44 to be used to pay tuition or federal student loans. Food is provided on project days, and housing (volunteer housing, tents, primitive facilities) is included both on and off projects. A living stipend will also be allotted in the amount of $110 per week. This is a gross amount before taxes, and the standard amount of state and federal income taxes/withholdings may be applied by law.

Qualifications: Professional Development Members should have an established interest in conservation issues and should take joy in tackling challenging situations with a positive mindset. Applicants must be willing to undertake arduous physical work in all types of weather and terrain, and to participate as a team member dedicated to ACE’s mission. ACE’s Professional Development Program is meant as a stepping stone to environmental careers and as a gateway to potential advancement within ACE, not only as an interesting and rewarding way to spend several weeks working in beautiful locations. Drug users, including users of marijuana, should not consider applying as ACE reserves the right to require drug testing and absolutely abhors the presence of drug users in our program. ACE intends to be a positive influence and intends to create safe and healthy environments for our members. The culture of alcohol and tobacco use is also restricted from ACE property and not supported by our mission of professionalism and personal development.

Other Requirements:
• Program is available to US Citizens and Green Card holders only.
• Members must have personal medical insurance for the duration of their participation with ACE.
• ACE will provide tents to all Members (upon request) but all other camping items such as sturdy boots, sleeping bags, backpacks, and raingear must be provided by the applicant.
• Due to fire hazard conditions in ACE, smoking is not permitted in many of the sensitive worksites. Smoking is not allowed on ACE property.

Age: 18-25

Training: Trainings may include a variety of technical project and outdoor skills such as trail hand tool usage, universal trail building principles such as tread and switchback construction, installing water bars, check dams and other erosion control devices, and GPS use. If technical rock-work projects exist: retaining wall construction, rock step construction, rock drilling, splitting and shaping, setting up rigging systems may be included.

Job Type:  Conservation

Location: Santa Cruz, California, USA

Salary:  $110/week living stipend, plus food on project days, housing included

Season: Fall
