I was 12 when I got the chance to visit Yellowstone National Park, and I've never stopped enjoying the park. If your kid or kids are aged 15 - 18, they can be a part of the 2024 Youth Conservation Corps and live, work, and play in Yellowstone National Park.

According to a press release, the program will have two month-long sessions.

from June 9-July 10 and July 14-Aug. 13. Forty youth will be randomly selected from across the country to participate in the program. Applicants must be citizens of the United States and 15 years of age by June 9, but not over 18 years of age by Aug. 13. Yellowstone recruits youth from all social, economic, ethnic and racial backgrounds for the program.
No previous wilderness experience is necessary, but enjoying camping is a plus since it will be required four nights a week during work assignments. Applicants should possess a positive attitude, a willingness and ability to work and learn in a physically active outdoor program and get along well with others. Participants will be required to live in the park, and a minimal fee will be charged for room and board. Wages will be $10.50 per hour..

What an incredible opportunity it could be for your kid. Imagine spending a month learning about nature and habitat while gaining self-esteem, work ethic, and leadership skills along the way.

It sounds like the perfect summer adventure and a way to experience everything Yellowstone National Park offers. This could also help your kid to work on their future and find what they want to do after high school.
