Pros

The Student Conservation Association offers current students as well as recent college graduates the opportunity to work all over the United States. They gain stipend compensation as well as health insurance. Very interesting and well-known employment opportunities that look great on a resume.

Cons

You do not make a ton of money. The stipend is enough to live on for your time with the Student Conservation Association, but it does not leave much left for savings. And you can only hold the job for 2 years at most.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    SCA is full of kind and enthusiastic people looking to make a real difference in the world and future generations. The training really prepares you for the job, from social training to work skills. The physical labor and teaching high schoolers how to build sustainable trails is very rewarding. Both of those allow for personal growth and gaining leadership experience. If you're looking for an awesome summer job and are 21 or older, I definitely recommend checking out the SCA Crew Leader opportunities.

    Cons

    As a Crew Leader, you need to rely a lot on your Program Manager and Co-Leader, so hopefully they are good matches for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The more SCA swag, the better!
