The River Corps Program engages District residents, ages 18–24, through classroom education and field-based experiences to gain technical skills needed to install, inspect, and maintain Green Infrastructure, and learn critical skills to secure employment.
River Corps participants work on watershed protection activities involving the maintenance and inspection of recently completed stream restoration and green infrastructure (GI) projects. These projects provide trainees with entry-level skills in GI. This program is implemented by a grantee.
Trainees are paid a bi-weekly stipend of up to $750, average of 25/hours/week, with opportunities for additional incentives during a 5-month duration. RiverCorps recruits all year long with cohorts starting in February and August.
