Are you passionate about our mission to protect the blue planet? Do you want to take direct action to further this mission in the greater Boston area and beyond?



Or maybe you are just sick of seeing so much plastic debris on our beaches and have an incessant urge to get people out there to clean up the mess?



Well, we have the position for you! 

We are seeking new Service Leaders for the live blue™ Service Corps! Through this program, we work with about 40 local environmental conservation organizations to complete projects that further our mission. Whether it is organizing monthly coastal cleanups, gardening in urban farms, cutting back invasive plants, or getting out the vote for local elections, there is something for everyone.

Volunteers in the live blue Service Corps participate in dozens of projects each year. In a given summer, they place decals around Boston storm drains, clean up the Neponset River, seed Quahog beds on the Cape, pull invasive plants in the Emerald Necklace, and track marine invertebrates in Boston Harbor.

Service Leaders help with many of these existing projects and can help foster new partnerships by reaching out to organizations that work on issues that interest them, such as urban agriculture right here in Boston. There are also tried-and-true projects that just need a leader to organize, such as recurring water chestnut removal projects on the Charles and Mystic rivers.

Applications for the next training sessions are due by Saturday, March 9. You can  apply by submitting a resume and cover letter to Ryan Kingston at volunteer@neaq.org.
