Calling all youth interested in saving the world: Apply for an all-expense paid summer program in Minnesota
MobilizeGreen (MG) is a non-profit on a mission to jump start green careers for young people who want to change the world! MG is seeking staff and participants for its summer 2020 YouthConservation Corps program. MG believes that, in order to build our society on a greener and more equitable foundation, young people must take a seat at the table. They are needed at both government and private sector “tables” to bring new ideas and energy to sustainability and environmental decision- making. MG strongly believes that the young people who take those seats must reflect America’s rapidly changing, rich demographic mix.
The MobilizeGreen-Forest Service YCC program is a three week residential program where members live and work together as a team on the Superior National Forest in Minnesota. YCC Members work on conservation-related projects together during the day and participate in environmental education, personal development opportunities, and outdoor recreation activities during the evenings and weekends. The YCC experience is unique and can create memories and friendships that last a lifetime. Program recruitment is targeted to attract youth from diverse backgrounds, including socio-economically disadvantaged youth from urban and rural communities across the country.
The Program Manager position is a great 6-month opportunity for an emerging leader to work both in the office and field setting while YCC Crew Leader positions offer 6 young adults a chance to lead and mentor a group of diverse high school students from around the country as they complete conservation projects with the Forest Service.
Interested High School Students can learn more and apply here.
