Great Basin Institute is looking for individuals experienced in recreational trail construction and looking forward to the challenge of leading day-to-day responsibilities of crew life.
You will lead four AmeriCorps Crew Members while constructing several mountain bike trails of various levels of difficulty along with other technical trail features within this state park; learn more about the origins of this trail project by visiting the International Mountain Bike Association website at https://www.imba.com/blog/caliente-nevada-building-destination-trail-system-scratch-0. You will coordinate with agency partners and collaborate with peers to see that project goals are accomplished safely and efficiently. Your crew will operate on an 8-day tour schedule (i.e. Monday to Monday) based from GBI’s Las Vegas field office. You will be responsible for facilitating a healthy and cohesive community within your crew.
Different than any other professional experience you could imagine, being a Crew Leader with the NCC is a full-time commitment where you will always be a resource to the members, both while on service project sites or back at camp after a long day. Preparing for and leading a crew requires unwavering dedication, and a willingness to put the needs of others first. The successful applicant will demonstrate dependability, excellent judgment, and high standards. We are looking for an individual who will lead by example and be a role model for the members who join our program. Though this position is challenging, the rewards are abundant; and the bonds forged with your peers, and with the outdoors will last a lifetime.
