NEW CITY, N.Y. -- The Rockland County Youth Bureau is accepting applications for 2016 summer internships with the Rockland Conservation & Service Corps, according to an announcement by County Executive Ed Day.

Students must be 17 to be considered.

"For future college graduates, internships play a key role in giving them an edge in the hiring process. An experience with the RCSC takes them beyond the classroom, helps them understand the importance of civic-minded conservation and opens their eyes to the array of careers out there," Day said,

Conservation Corps summer interns are paid a stipend to perform a variety of outdoor, environmental community service projects throughout the County.

Members are required to serve 350 hours between June 1 and Aug.12 at local sites, including the Rockland County Division of Environmental Resources, the Town of Clarkstown Planning Department, the Town of Ramapo, the Rockland County Drainage Agency, Rockland County Solid Waste Management Authority and Cornell Cooperative Extension.

Fifty hours of training at Cornell Cooperative Extension are included in the 350-hour time commitment.

Members are trained in areas including environmental education, trail building, conservation, curriculum development, leadership, team building, safety as well as a variety of other pertinent topics. They will receive a $2,100 living stipend.

Applicants must be able to demonstrate their enthusiasm for environmental issues, be committed to serving their community and be willing to participate in outdoor activities that include hot and rainy weather conditions and wet and/or wooded environments.

This is a full-time (35-40 hours per week) with a summer schedule that will permit the completion of the 350-hour time commitment.

Applications are accepted until positions are filled.

The program runs June 1 through August.

To request an application call (845)-708-7308 or email rcamericorps@co.rockland.ny.us.
