V.I. National Park Runs Summer Youth Conservation Corp Program

Virgin Islands National Park will host its Annual Youth Conservation Corp (YCC) program again this summer. The YCC program provides an opportunity for youths to be employed for a six-week period while gaining an understanding and appreciation about the conservation mission for the National Park Service.
The program will employ 16 participants, who will be involved in a variety of duties associated with park operations. They will earn $7.25 an hour.
The program will begin on June 24 and end on Aug. 2. Applicants must be 15-18 years of age and a U.S. citizen or have permanent residency status.
Interested youths may pick up an application at the National Park Visitor Center in Cruz Bay between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. beginning June 6, which must be returned by June 13. Selections will be made by random drawing.
For more information, contact Vanessa Taliaferro-Robinson, administrative officer, at 776-6201, ext. 260 or Jean-Louis Williams, maintenance mechanic supervisor, at 693-8989, ext. 22.
