Does your program serve disadvantaged young people ages 15–25 and/or military veterans up to age 35? Does your program prepare participants to be successful in the 21st century workforce? Do your projects include significant outdoor activity and/or include ‘‘hands-on’’ direct impact that connect youth to America’s Great Outdoors?
If you answer yes to these questions, be sure to check out the July 1st, 2013 Federal Register Notice, “21st Century Conservation Service Corps Partnership Opportunity” at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2013-07-01/pdf/2013-15644.pdf. The 21st Century Conservation Service Corps (21CSC) National Council is requesting letters of interest from all conservation and youth corps programs that would like to be identified as a 21CSC member organization.
The 21CSC will provide service, training, education, and employment opportunities for thousands of young Americans and veterans, while protecting, restoring, and enhancing public and tribal lands and waters as well as natural, cultural, and historical resources and treasures.
