Supervising Young Adults in Conservation


Target Audience:  

Employees who supervise young adults in seasonal and internship positions.  

Summary and Objectives:  

Supervising young adults in seasonal and internship positions can be a new and challenging experience for even the most seasoned of supervisors; it requires knowledge and understanding of an emerging workforce eager to gain experience and skills in their fields of interest. It also involves developing meaningful jobs, setting expectations and mentoring young people, especially around developing work ethic and professionalism. This previously recorded webinar, led by highly knowledgeable Student Conservation Association (SCA) staff possessing practical hands-on experience working with and supervising young adults in both field-based and office environments, will relate critical thinking to common issues and situations often faced by supervisors working with young adults aged 16-25 years.
