Age 17- 20: if you love being outdoors in the Tonto National Forest that surrounds Globe-Miami, apply now for September-October outdoor jobs sponsored by the Arizona Conservation Corps. YCC participants earn $12.15 per hour learning new skills through hands-on projects within the forest and also local communities during these seven-week-long jobs. Unlike some YCC assignments that require camping, this fall’s Globe-Miami crew will work daytimes, returning home each night. Youth Crew members live at home and work Monday-through-Friday on projects in the surrounding national forest, with preference given to local applicants. Crew members report it’s a learning experience, too - a chance to actively participate in environmental education activities and follow safety procedures in all tasks assigned (including safe use of and maintenance of hand tools). Most importantly: participants must be willing to be an active member of a crew of up to eight (six crew members and two mentor team-leaders) from different backgrounds committed to actively improving the natural world around them through a variety of projects. Who is an ideal candidate? One willing to work outside, who loves to be outside - and is drawn to project work, and with a passion for conservation and nature. Being ready to try new things and learn new skills, working as part of a team towards a common goal - and ready to have fun - are also traits of an ideal YCC crew member.
