AMERICORPS / NCCCC / FEMA

Team Leaders

 

Opportunity: AmeriCorps NCCC (National Civilian Community Corps) is a team-based national service program. NCCC members are 18-24 years old and spend 10 months getting things done for America. We mentor kids, build homes, help the environment and respond to disasters. Currently we have a team residing in Birmingham, AL working with MetroChangers in the community.

 

We’re looking for Team Leaders!  There is no upper age limit for team leaders. Members are assigned to one of five campuses, located in Denver, Colorado; Sacramento, California; Baltimore, Maryland; Vicksburg, Mississippi; and Vinton, Iowa.

 

Who We Are: The mission of AmeriCorps NCCC is to strengthen communities and develop leaders through direct, team-based national and community service. In partnership with secular and faith based non-profits, local municipalities, state governments, federal government, national or state parks, Indian Tribes and schools, members complete service projects throughout the region they are assigned. NCCC service projects generally last 6-12 weeks and respond to needs in the areas of natural and other disasters, infrastructure improvement, environmental steward-ship and conservation, energy conservation, and urban and rural development. At AmeriCorps NCCC we are dedicated to building a Corps of highly motivated youth that represent the vast diversity of our nation.

 

FEMA Corps FEMA Corps is a track of AmeriCorps NCCC developed in partnership with FEMA and CNCS. The program reveals the inner workings of FEMA and a behind the scenes look at how disasters are managed. FEMA Corps members receive significant amounts of training and serve in areas that include: canvassing communities, developing disaster preparation materials, managing data and reports, and other organizational, administrative and logistical support. This track is a great opportunity for people who wish to pursue a career in emergency management and are looking to receive experience in a professional environment. Typical project lengths are 6- 11 weeks and/or disaster dependent.

 

Team Leaders: Do You Have What it Takes?  AmeriCorps NCCC seeks team leaders to provide experience and leadership to corps members in both our NCCC and FEMA Corps programs as they work to strengthen communities. Team leaders coordinate the activities of 8-12 corps members per team.

We are looking for dedicated team leaders who are capable and willing to engage our teams of diverse young people in service benefiting communities across America—team leaders who can promote a culture of learning and “getting things done” through teamwork. It is crucial for our team leaders, who act as role models, mentors, and coaches, to recognize that diversity extends beyond ethnicity, race, socioeconomic status, age, and gender, but also includes values, perception, ideology, and experience. Corps members can come from highly advantaged or highly disadvantaged circumstances. By acknowledging the significance and value in our differences, team leaders will encourage a team dynamic that is truly invested in learning from each other and engaged in the communities they serve.

 

Team leaders build a cohesive team from diverse individuals through promoting a culture of safety, respect, flexibility, and openness. A team that appreciates the value that each individual corps member contributes will not only work well together to accomplish project needs, but inspire the communities they serve to work together to do the same.

 

Description: Safety & Logistics.  Ensure the safety of the corps members, including proper use of equipment.  Conduct or coordinate training such as skills building workshops, safe work practices, team-building exercises, mini-courses, and physical training in collaboration with NCCC staff. Projects.  Model a good work ethic and serve alongside corps members to set the work pace. Plan daily and weekly team schedules that will result in the execution of project objectives and activities. Facilitate, encourage, support, and model service-learning integration. Coordinate project logistics with Unit Leaders and project sponsors, participate in staff and corps member meetings, and serve as programmatic and administrative liaison between corps members and staff. Team building.  Supervise, motivate, direct, and coordinate a team of young adults in a structured program of service, education, and training; maintain order; develop team morale; foster teamwork; monitor standards of behavior. Manage team dynamics; assist corps members in dealing with stress; manage corps members with different levels of maturity; handle behavioral issues that may result in disciplinary action. Develop corps members as leaders through service projects and team positions. Conduct regularly scheduled team meetings designed to unify corps members by building consensus, resolving conflicts, and providing structured feedback.

 

Qualifications: AmeriCorps NCCC seeks team leader applicants who are experienced supervisors with prior service experience in communities, schools, the Peace Corps, AmeriCorps, youth corps programs, or the U.S. military, and who have demonstrated leadership experience with diverse youth. Applicants must be at least 18 years old, but there is no upper age limit; a U.S. citizen, U.S. national or lawful permanent resident alien; and have a valid U.S. driver's license. FEMA Corps team leaders must be U.S. citizens.

 

Member Benefits:  Team leaders receive a living allowance of $12,500, room and board, and limited health and child care benefits. Like AmeriCorps NCCC corps members, team leaders will receive a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award of $5,775 following the successful completion of the program.

 

To Apply: Create an account with My AmeriCorps, the onlineAmeriCorps Recruitment System at www.nationalservice.gov/nccc.  Submit an application to the AmeriCorps NCCC TeamLeader and/or AmeriCorps NCCC FEMA Corps Team Leader position.  Applications are reviewed, campuses conduct interviews, make selections, and correspond with applicants as needed.

MASS MUTUAL

Financial Services Representative

 

Opportunity: A rewarding career for college graduates.  As a recent college graduate, you’ve already proven that you’re self-motivated and goal-oriented. If you’re interested in a career that rewards hard work and provides the satisfaction of helping people and impacting lives for the better, then a career as a Financial Services Representative may be right for you.  

 

Description:  As a Financial Services Representative with The Piedmont Group, LLC, a MassMutual general agency, you’ll work with clients to help them find solutions to their financial challenges by recommending appropriate products and services.

NOLAN ELDER LAW

Internship

 

Opportunity: Nolan Law Firm, a small law firm on Valleydale Road, seeks an intern to shadow the attorney and get an insider perspective on the practice of law.

 

Description:  Hours are flexible and dress code (except when going to court) is casual. Free coffee is a real plus and free parking right outside the door is something not every law firm can offer you. When there is nothing going on you are welcomed to study if needed or simply surf the internet. While I would like to say that every day is slammed, the truth is that business ebbs and flows.

 

Here is the catch: This is an Elder Law practice. What this means is that much of our work veers closer to Social Work than it does to the law practices you will see on your favorite TV show. We do not handle litigation so courtroom antics are not something you are likely to see here. The typical day involves meeting with someone your mother’s age to discuss in detail how to provide for someone your grandmother’s age. Veterans benefits, Medicaid, Social Security, dementia, estate planning and probate are all topics we routinely discuss with clients. If your interest is litigation, this is not a good fit. If your interest is helping people who don't know where to turn, this might work for you.

 

One more catch: This is an unpaid position. We are offering you an opportunity to see how the business of running a law practice works in exchange for your occasional labor. Happy to write recommendations as needed and happy to discuss ways of getting class credit for you but there are no paychecks with this job.

 

There is more about the firm on our website: www.ElderLawAlabama.com

 

To Apply: Contact Jessica for more details and to set up an interview: (205) 390-0101.

RAM ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGIES

Internship/PT Job

 

Opportunity: I am working with my father to rebuild the business he started with a partner 20+ years ago (www.ramenv.com). In addition to his 20+ years operating and growing this business, my father has a background in banking and personal finance, has an MBA from Samford, and is a past-president of both the Alabama IAFP and the Alabama ICFP (now merged into the FPA of North Alabama).  I have a Building Science Degree from Auburn, and I worked for Robins & Morton for 7 years. I also served in the US Navy for 4 years.

 

We’re coming to the end of a massive transition from the original partnership, and we’re deep “in the weeds” implementing new technologies and modernizing our sales, marketing, and communication strategies.  I think we’re on the verge of solid growth, but as a small business trying to re-establish ourselves, the outcome is, of course, uncertain.

 

I’m thinking that an entrepreneurial minded student with broad interests in technology and business administration would be a great fit to help roll out some of our technology projects (Salesforce, ISNetworld, Constant Contact). And also assisting with tweaking some of our communication strategies.

 

I’m kind of in brain-storming mode and I’m reaching out to some local universities to see if there is any interest from students in seeing what a small business goes through, even 20+ years after getting off the ground.

So all we ask is that you bring your uniqueness and meet a few general characteristics: Excellent communication skills. Self-motivated, highly energetic and an outgoing personality. Reliable, trustworthy, and a strong work ethic.  Resourceful, organized, and love the details.  Flexible, with a can-do attitude.  A valid driver’s license.  Reliable transportation to and from events.  Ability to work Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  Ability to stand for 6 hours or longer.  Ability to lift boxes of 25 pounds or more.

 

Compensation: Our ambassadors are contract positions and are paid at an hourly rate depending on the type of activity and/or event conducted. Details of compensation and work required are determined before any work is performed.
