YCC: Come work with us this summer!
Spend the summer working on trails within Mount Rainier National Park and learning about the park's wildlife, resources, and careers in the process! We are hiring for two Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) crews this summer.
Who Can Apply
Any 15-18 yrs olds* living within driving distance of Mount Rainier National Park. The towns/cities of Enumclaw, Greenwater, Buckley, Orting, Eatonville, Morton, Packwood and Randle are the closest. *You must turn 15 by June 27, 2022 and may not turn 19 before August 19, 2022 to apply.
The YCC program is 8 weeks in duration. Monday, June 27 - Friday, August 19 are the tentative dates for the 2022 season. The crew will work Monday-Friday, 8:00 am - 4:30 pm.
The YCC Longmire crew begins and ends their day in Ashford at Mount Rainier National Park Headquarters to travel to and from the park by passenger van. The YCC Sunrise crew will meet at the USFS Enumclaw Office to travel to and from the park by passenger van. This year we plan to have the crews work mainly on projects at Paradise and Sunrise. They may perform maintenance and construction efforts elsewhere as well. YCC crewmembers must arrange a ride or drive to their resepective meeting locations (Ashford, Enumclaw). Transportation to and from their meeting locations is perhaps the biggest challenge of this being viable employment for folks. In the past, crewmembers have carpooled to make this more feasible.
Fill out the application form. Applications must be returned by May 2 to Craig Frohbieter at email@example.com. Please identify which crew you would like to be considered for (Longmire or Sunrise). You will then be entered into a lottery for a spot on one of the crews.
