Virginia State Parks Youth Corps Supervisors
The deadline for the application is February 1, 2014.
The Virginia State Parks Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) is a youth program that is tailored towards volunteering and making our Virginia State Parks a better place! Supervisors for the Youth Conservation Corps lead a group of ten to fourteen crewmembers aged 14-17 through a three week long program where they work and live at a state park. Leaders of our crews receive an $1800 stipend and a $350 travel stipend following successful completion of our three week program. YCC is a memorable and rewarding experience and it looks great on a resume! Programs are divided into two sessions. Our hope for the summer of 2014 is to have a program at all 36 of our state parks, roughly 18 each session. Some supervisors may be asked to participate in two sessions. If selected, supervisors must be able to attend a mandatory training session on June 11-15, 2014 at Westmoreland State Park. This year we will be hosting a member of the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) to show our supervisors the basics of trail construction and maintenance. Trail maintenance and construction are two major projects that you may complete during your time as a YCC Supervisor. Other projects can include: vista/scenic overlook clearing, campsite construction, signage construction, wetland restoration, and other environmental important projects.
Some important dates that pertain to our program are as follows:
Mandatory Supervisor Training: June 11-15 2014 at Westmoreland State Park
1st Session: June 22-July 11, 2014
2nd Session: July 20-August 9, 2014
