The Clarence Cannon National Wildlife Refuge will hire youths for the summer of 2014 to be a part of the Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) program. The program will run from June 9 through August 1, 2014, for a total of eight weeks.
YCC is a well-balanced program that allows youth to develop an understanding and appreciation of the nation's environment. YCC enrollees are employed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, part of the Department of Interior.
Projects may include maintaining trails, minor maintenance and construction, habitat improvement and more. An education component is incorporated into weekly projects.
The program is open to youths ages 15-18. Interested applicants must be 15 years of age by June 9, 2014 and cannot turn 19 years old on or before August 1, 2014. Participants will be selected by random drawing. Selected applicants will be paid the Missouri minimum wage of $7.50 per hour and work 40-hours per week.
Form more information about the YCC program or the refuge, contact Candy Chambers at 573-847-2333.
