NATIONAL PARK TO HIRE 11 YOUTHS FOR SUMMER

May 8, 2001 – The V.I. National Park on St. John will again host a Youth Conservation Camp program this summer, running from June 18 through Aug. 10 .
The work-learn-earn program is open to young people ages 15 through 18 residing permanently in the United States. Participants will work 40 hours a week and will be involved in administrative, maintenance and resource management aspects of National Park Service operations. The positions pay $5.15 per hour.
There are openings for 11 participants. "However, all youths within that age bracket are urged to apply," a release states. From the qualified applicants, the park management will select the 11 by a lottery drawing.
