Volunteer Opportunity with the Appalachian Trail

The below post is an email from the Centennial Volunteer Ambassador, Hope Midok, an alumna of CHC.

Hi Everyone!

I hope things are going well at the HC and that the year is off to a great start! I wanted let you know about an upcoming opportunity with the Appalachian Trail. The application isn’t quite finished so it’s not available to the public yet (should be soon!), but when it is we’ll be moving fast so I wanted to give you a heads up.

As part of its strategic plan for 2015-2019 the Appalachian Trail Conservancy is looking to create the first ever Next Generation Advisory Council in order to foster the development of broader relevancy and diversity within the trail community. It’s a fantastic opportunity for resume building that would also count for volunteer hours.
