The Minnesota Conservation Corps is currently hiring 15 to 18 year old youth from all over the United States for our summer youth program. Every year we hire 15-20 Deaf and Hard of Hearing youth and around 60 hearing youth from all different backgrounds to do environmental work in state parks and national parks. The program is 8 weeks long from June 20th – August 14th and the youth work 35 hours a week. The youth receive a weekly stipend of $175 for their work which adds up to over $1000 for the whole summer. The rest of the time is spent learning about the environment, cooking over a campfire, hiking, fishing, swimming, and relaxing at camp. All activities are inclusive and every crew is led by at least one ASL interpreter.
We are looking for Deaf youth who have the maturity to live 8 weeks away from home, and who are looking for a fun-filled and physically challenging summer.
Open to all youth, ages 15 to 18; applications due April 23, 2010
Information and application is available at: www.conservationcorps.org or call (651) 209-9900
