Summer Youth Corps
Summer Youth Corps participants (ages 15-18) add value to their communities, the environment and themselves through their dedicated service. This residential program will engage crew members in a rigorous program of work, education and training. Crew members will work in crews of eight youth and two leaders to participate in 1-2 week environmental restoration “spike” projects. Spike projects are completed outside of the residential base and may include trail construction and maintenance, foot bridge building, landscaping, campsite development and invasive plant removal. Crews will camp in tents and prepare their own meals. All work projects are completed outside, even during hot or cold weather and in rain (except in unsafe conditions such as lightning).
Program dates, schedule and compensation:
Location: This is a residential program for the entirety of the session dates. As youth will be away from home for the entirety of the program, all food, transportation and lodging will be completely provided for as crews travel throughout Minnesota and surrounding area to complete service projects.
This program is available to all, without regard to disability, race, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation or political affiliation. The Conservation Corps engages AmeriCorps members, ages 18-25, as defined under the American Conservation and Youth Service Corps Act, a subtitle of the National and Community Service Act of 1990. Reasonable accommodations provided upon request.
Deadline: March 26, 2017
Applications will be reviewed as they come in. Please apply early!
