Hire our Grads

Civicorps’ Corpsmembers have mastered many of the skills that new hires are often expected to learn on the job. Through our paid job training program, they work on crews, earning professional certifications and learning how to use tools such as brush-cutters, chainsaws, forklifts and more. They also learn important soft skills like the importance of showing up to work on time, maintaining a professional appearance, working as a team, and accepting constructive criticism in order to keep progressing in their work.

Corpsmembers strive to complete our Conservation Intern Investment Program (CIIP), a series of career readiness steps including certifications, Friday workshops, and objectives. CIIP tracks participant progress as they complete milestones divided into the following categories: Career Readiness Workshops and Assignments (including our annual Career Fair), Positive Job Performance Reviews, Skill Development, Community Participation and Civic Consciousness, and Awards. As they complete their objectives, Conservation Interns become eligible to train for leadership roles, including Crew Leader I and II, within Civicorps and qualify for post-secondary education scholarships.

Civicorps’ Pathways Manager works with local businesses to place our Corpsmembers in internships, pre-apprenticeships, apprenticeships, or jobs. They then provide ongoing support to both the intern and the employer to ensure a successful placement.

  • Civicorps performs a lot of outstanding work for us. As a government agency, we benefit from supporting the mission of the Park District and the community, and the park district benefits by supporting the work that you do and giving people job opportunities, job training experience, and experience out in the parks. It’s challenging work, and we appreciate Civicorps’ hard work and flexibility.
