Big Island youth have an opportunity this summer to work at a West Hawai‘i national park.

Those who participate will take part in conservation- and preservation-related projects throughout the park and work with all park divisions.

This year’s Youth Conservation Corps program is scheduled for a six-week period from June 13-July 22. Participants will work 40 hours a week, Monday through Friday, and Saturday, June 25. Pay is $10.10 per hour.

Applications can be picked up at the park and are due no later than June 3.
