Summer Positions Available for Teens at Chautauqua National Wildlife Refuge
CHAUTAUQUA NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE, near Havana is accepting applications for the 2018 Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) Program tentatively scheduled to begin June 4 and end July 27. YCC enrollees work on wildlife habitat improvement projects, refuge maintenance projects, trails, boundary posting, brush cutting, and other outdoor work. Environmental education field trips are scheduled to provide enrollees a diverse experience with other conservation activities. Applicants must be at least 15 when the program begins (June 4) and must not turn 19 before the program closes (July 27). Enrollees will be selected in a random drawing to participate in the 8 week program. YCC enrollees will be paid the state minimum wage of $8.25 per hour, 40 hours per week. The daily reporting site is the refuge headquarters located 9 miles northeast of Havana, just off the Manito Blacktop. Working hours are 7:30 AM-4:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Applications must be received at the refuge headquarters by 3:00 PM on Friday, April 13. If selected, applicants under the age of 16 will be required to obtain a work permit before May 2. The work is primarily outdoors so exposure to insects and poison ivy is inevitable. Appropriate personal protective equipment will be provided by the refuge. Information on obtaining YCC enrollee applications is being provided to area schools. For more information, please contact Ron Fisher at 309/535-2290 or Ron_Fisher@fws.gov. See Mrs. Hatfill for an application.
“On Time, All Day, Every day!” Coming to school “on time, all day and everyday” teaches our young people…even the tiniest among us…discipline, responsibility and work ethic. All of these qualities are necessary as we prepare these students for college and career. The General State aid we receive from the government to buy supplies and materials for our classrooms depends on the number of students who regularly attend school. Children need parents and guardians to encourage them to be here. Help us help them to be “On Time, ALL Day, Every day!”
