POSITION OVERVIEW & TRAINING

The UCC Crew Leader position focuses on providing opportunities for individuals aspiring to assume a

The UCC Crew Leader begins their term of service in the Spring as a Crew Leader Candidate (CLC).
CLC’s participate in hard skills training and peer-led conservation projects during the Spring season
(February – May). Field Staff will provide extra attention to debriefing projects, helping CLC’s refine
tool and project techniques, attending to areas of individual growth, and teaching the full responsibilities
of the UCC Crew Leader position. Informal training will continue throughout the term of service with on-the-ground skills and project-specific training, as needed.

CLC’s will be evaluated by Field Staff throughout the Spring season. Upon demonstration of essential
competencies, CLC’s will be promoted into a UCC Crew Leader role for the Summer and Fall seasons.
UCC Crew Leaders may be required to co-lead in collaboration with another Crew Leader during the
Summer and Fall seasons depending on project needs.

During the Summer and Fall seasons, UCC Crew Leaders are responsible for facilitating a positive crew
member experience by setting an example of enthusiasm throughout work and camp life while leading a 5
to 10-person crew on various conservation-related projects. UCC Crew Leaders provide direct leadership,
mentorship, support, and training for their UCC field crew. Crew Leaders are also responsible for
upholding UCC values, ensuring that UCC policies and procedures are followed, communicating with
project partners, and recording and reporting weekly project outcome data and other documentation.
