Yellowstone Recruiting for Youth Conservation Corps Program
Yellowstone National Park is currently recruiting for the 2014 Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) program, a residential work and education program for young men and women between the ages of 15 and 18.
Yellowstone recruits youth from all social, economic, ethnic and racial backgrounds for the YCC program. Corps members work together under adult leadership to complete conservation projects such as rehabilitation of trails, campground restoration and a wide variety of resource management and maintenance projects.
According to a news release, Yellowstone will offer two month-long YCC sessions: June 8 to July 9, and July 13 to August 13.
Fifty youth will be selected from across the country to participate in the program.
