Stewards Individual Placement Program (SIPP) provides individuals with service and career opportunities to strengthen communities and preserve our natural resources. Participants work with federal agencies, tribal governments, and nonprofits building institutional capacity, developing community relationships, and supporting ecosystem health.

The Ice Age Trail Alliance believes the 1,200-mile-long Ice Age National Scenic Trail is a place where all people can enjoy and embrace the unique natural landscapes and cultural histories of Wisconsin, while finding physical and mental renewal in a peaceful setting, and an enduring spiritual connection to the land. In addition to the personal wellness and motivation one finds on the Trail, the broader community benefits from this resource. Indeed, the characteristics of the Trail are the same forces which create a variety of economic development streams communities may capitalize upon. As the Trail winds through the state, it passes some of the most low-income counties. These remote areas also hold some of the most natural beauty.

A VISTA member will create a bridge between promoting the Ice Age Trail and the positive societal and economic impacts created when visitors visit, and locals embrace these iconic spaces. Activities will vary, but most certainly will include a strong social media presence to promote the positive impacts the Ice Age Trail can have on local economies. In essence, they will bridge the gap between a declining agricultural economy and an increase in ecotourism related to outdoor recreation.

Position Responsibilities will include:

  • Create itineraries highlighting recreational opportunities
  • Identify opportunities for tourism based on experiencing a range of activities along the Ice Age Trail in remote areas of the state
  • Use data and research to identify and implement best practices in engaging the next generation of volunteers
  • Integrate findings from above with the existing communications strategies of the Alliance to drive awareness and tourism dollars to economically depressed counties along the Trail



Position is eligible for an AmeriCorps education award upon successful completion of the program.

  • Value of education award is $6895 (pre-tax).
  • Living Allowance: $675.08 bi-weekly(pre-tax)
