South Coast Youth Corps accepting applications

Posted

For most high school students a summer job means working for minimum wage in fast food or retail, if they are lucky enough to find work at all. But for some area youth a summer job means pulling on a pair of waders and sloshing into the water to test the quality of a local brook, leading a group of children into the woods for a nature walk or building a boardwalk for a new hiking trail on conservation land.

For young people ages 16 to 19 who enjoy working outside and have an interest in the environment, the South Coast Youth Corps is much more than a summer job; it is a powerful learning experience that incorporates academic and work skills into practical projects that provide real benefits to the local community and environment.

The Trustees of Reservation is currently accepting applications for the summer of 2014. For more information about the program and how to apply contact Linton Harrington at The Trustees of Reservations, 508/ 636-4693 ext. 104 or email lharrington@ttor.org.

Jim McGaw

A lifelong Portsmouth resident, Jim graduated from Portsmouth High School in 1982 and earned a journalism degree from the University of Rhode Island in 1986. He's worked two different stints at East Bay Newspapers, for a total of 18 years with the company so far. When not running all over town bringing you the news from Portsmouth, Jim listens to lots and lots and lots of music, watches obscure silent films from the '20s and usually has three books going at once. He also loves to cook crazy New Orleans dishes for his wife of 25 years, Michelle, and their two sons, Jake and Max.
