This summer the War in the Pacific National Historical Park will once again host the Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) program and will be accepting applications between now and April 5, 2013.

The Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) is a well-balanced work-learn-earn program that develops an understanding and appreciation in participating youth of the nation’s environment and heritage. YCC participants will engage in a wide variety of conservation and park operations activities that will teach them about our National Park and the National Park Service’s mission to protect special places for all.

The park will hire up to four youth in the YCC program at the federal minimum wage. The program will run for up to eight weeks, with participants working
40 hours per week, Monday through Friday. The program will begin the pay period beginning June 3 and go through July 26.

Enrollees must be at least 15 years of age on June 3, 2013 and no older than 18 on July 26, 2013. To apply, applicants must fill out an application and if not 18 years of age, have a parent’s or guardian’s signature. You will only be contacted if you (or your child) have been selected.

Applications can be picked up Monday through Friday, from 9am through 3pm, at the following locations or on the web at www.nps.gov/wapa. Look for the “YCC” link on the main page. The T. Stell Newman Visitor Center is at Bldg 1657-B, old Army Reserve Center, Santa Rita, Guam 96915.

For specific questions or concerns, feel free to contact Theo K. Chargualaf at theo_chargualaf@nps.gov or 477-7278, extension 1005.
