2014 Youth Conservation Corps Internships Available

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 4, 2014.

Enrollees must be at least 15 years of age on June 3, 2014 and no older than 18 on July 26, 2014. 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.
