HAMPTON ROADS — Virginia State Parks is currently recruiting qualified candidates for the Youth Conservation Corps program for 2024.

Eligible applicants must be 14-17 years of age and going into at least their first year of high school. Session dates are June 16-29 and July 7-20.

Crew members will live and work in one of 42 Virginia State Parks for a two-week session while completing trail maintenance, basic construction and park beautification projects led by adult crew leaders and park staff, according to the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation.

“Participants will find this program to be both challenging and rewarding,” said Youth Engagement Coordinator Scarlett Stevens. “This program is not a summer camp. No prior outdoor work experience is required, but participants should expect to spend their weekdays working hard in the heat, and weekends exploring the natural beauty of Virginia.”

Room and board are provided, and crew members will receive a $750 stipend at the end of the two-week session, the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation said. Applications must be filled out by the youth rather than a family member or guardian.

Applications are accepted until March 15 for the program. For more details on how to apply, visit the Youth Conservation Corps web page.
