Hagåtña, Guam – The Leon Guerrero-Tenorio Administration announces job creation initiatives with the availability of employment opportunities at the Department of Agriculture (DOAG) under the Civilian Volunteer Conservation Officer Reserve Program (CVCORP).

Reservists must fulfill a minimum of 42 hours of service per month to meet program requirements and receive the monthly stipend of $500.

“Thriving ecosystems support successful communities and businesses, so the work of our conservation officers and civilian volunteers is critically important to Guam’s recovery,” said Governor Lou Leon Guerrero. “Through this comprehensive training opportunity, we will build the conservation workforce of the future. We will cultivate the protectors of our prosperity, and we will grow the resilience of our food security, natural resources, and pristine environment.”
“Our Administration launched this program to accelerate land, water, and wildlife conservation efforts across our island, and to empower our community through increasing awareness of our local conservation laws,” said Lt. Governor Josh Tenorio. “The work of civilian volunteers in these initiatives helps us advance conservation and restoration projects islandwide, and are aligned with our mission to meet the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. With the commitment of more volunteers, we will further our strides toward a more sustainable future.”
