Great River and Clarence Cannon NWRs Announce Summer Employment for Youth

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 3, 2013 and cannot turn 19 years old on or before July 26, 2013.  Four participants will be selected by random drawing.  Selected applicants will be paid the Missouri minimum wage of $7.35 per hour and work 40-hours per week.
