Join us. Do Work that Matters!

MobilizeGreen seeks conservation-minded Maintenance Fellows who want a career opportunity in one or more of the trades with the federal government. Through its partnership with the US Fish & Wildlife Service (“FWS”), MobilizeGreen is implementing the FWS’ Maintenance and Infrastructure Fellowship program for diverse participants. Fellows will work on a variety of maintenance projects on a network of public lands and waters called the National Wildlife Refuge System. The Maintenance Fellowships typically are for 26 or 52 weeks. As a Fellow, you will work in a beautiful setting, learning maintenance, project management, equipment use, and leadership development. Through mentorship and training, Fellows will gain the opportunity to launch their career with a non-competitive or through other hiring authorities once they successfully complete their fellowship.

MobilizeGreen is an organization committed to diversity. Women, people of color, indigenous people, people of all sexual orientations and gender identities, military veterans, and members of other historically disenfranchised groups are encouraged to apply.
