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 third year of the flagship HBCUI Program. This program, designed to link HBCU students and their communities to National Park Service sites with an African American theme, will see 17 students working at 15 NPS sites this summer. Please see the report on 2013’s HBCUI Program.
