The Youth Conservation Corps is a well-balanced work-learn-earn program that develops an understanding and appreciation in participating youth of the Nation’s environment and heritage. Youth Conservation Corps offers gainful summer employment to youth in a healthful outdoor atmosphere.
You must be a hard worker between the ages of 15 to 18 to qualify for this program. This eight week program pays minimum wage and will start in early June and run through early August. Two young men and two young women will be selected for these positions by a random drawing which will be held in late April.
Participants will do hard physical work and may be exposed to insects, poison oak and ivy, adverse weather, and difficult working conditions. Some jobs may not be fun or may be a bit monotonous, but in the end most past participants have noted that overall they enjoyed the experience and are glad they had the opportunity.
