Youth Conservation Corps


GYF recruits, trains, and exposes 16 to 25-year old diverse youth and young adults to conservation and preservation careers through internships, work crews, and special projects on federal partner sites. The high quality of GYF youth recruits came from some of our educational program high schools, our strong partnerships with HBCU’s, 4-year University and community college partners, and similar youth-focused organization partners.

GYF is in its fourth year of the flagship HBCUI Program. This program is designed to link HBCU students and their communities to National Park Service sites with an African American theme. This summer 42 students from all across America will be working at 31 NPS sites. Please see the report on 2013’s HBCUI Program.
