Shenandoah National Park is now accepting applications for its summer Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) program. The YCC program provides gainful employment and an educational experience in the conservation of the park’s natural and cultural heritage. YCC enrollees work to maintain park trails, roads, buildings and campgrounds while learning about Shenandoah National Park.
This year’s eight-week YCC program runs June 15-Aug. 7. Applicants for YCC crew member positions must be between the ages of 16 and 18 during the employment period. YCC enrollees work 40 hours per week and earn minimum wage.
Additional program information and the current application can be obtained online from the park’s website. Mail completed applications, postmarked by April 15, to Volunteer & Youth Programs Coordinator, Shenandoah National Park, 3655 U.S. Hwy. 211 East, Luray, VA 22835.
