The Massachusetts Land Initiative for Tomorrow (MassLIFT) AmeriCorps program was initiated and is managed by Mount Grace Land Conservation Trust as a collaborative effort of regional conservation organizations seeking to increase the pace of land and watershed protection across the Commonwealth. Sixteen organizations are host sites for our AmeriCorps members in MassLIFT’s 2012 program.
Each year 20 AmeriCorps members serve in the program, helping their hosting organizations meet critical community needs for land protection, including conservation project initiation and implementation, stewardship of protected lands, outreach to the broader community, and service learning opportunities to engage young people in conservation. MassLIFT members serve in one of four positions: Land Stewards, Outreach Coordinators, Regional Conservationists, and Service Learning Coordinators.
AmeriCorps engages more than 88,000 men and women in intensive service each year through more than 15,000 nonprofits, schools, public agencies, and community and faith-based groups across the country.
MassLIFT-AmeriCorps is funded in part by a $260,000 annual grant from the Corporation of National and Community Service (CNCS). CNCS grants to AmeriCorps programs in Massachusetts are administered by the Massachusetts Service Alliance.
