If you are 15-18 years old, like the outdoors, and are looking for a fun summer job, this opportunity is for you!

This year, Kenai Fjords National Park will offer several positions to local youth interested in working for the federal Youth Conservation Corps.  Students will have a chance to engage visitors, maintain the park, or work with scientists to better understand how park resources are managed.

The YCC program is designed to give youth the background they need to pursue further employment with the National Park Service.  It is also a great way to learn new skills and begin building a resume.   Students will work 10-12 weeks, 32-40 hours a week, and earn $10.00/hr.   Applicants must be 15 years old by May 15th and cannot be more than 18 years old by August 20th.

Applications will be available on January 30th  and can be picked up from Martha Fleming at Seward High School, the Seward Job Service Center in the Avtec building on 2nd Avenue or at park headquarters, 500 Adams Street, suite 103 across from City Hall.  All applications must be received at park headquarters by 4pm on February 15th.
