How would you like to help Yellowstone National Park while you work, learn and play there all at once?

Calling all youth ages 15-18: the nation's first national park is currently recruiting for the 2017 Youth Conservation Corps program, a residential work-based education program. Completed application materials must be received by March 1. You will find the necessary application and instruction info at the YCC site.

YCC is designed to develop an appreciation for the nation's natural resources and heritage through unique educational, recreation and work experiences. No previous wilderness experience is required, but you must have a willingness to work in a physically active outdoor program.

Team players needed! This is not volunteer work, there is an hourly wage. There are two month-long sessions during the summer, and only 60 youths will be chosen. We wish you the best of luck if this sounds like something you'd really like an opportunity to get to do!
