Youth Employment Opportunities
Job Description: Young Conservation Stewards
The Young Conservation Stewards (YCS) is an employment and job skills training program for high school aged youth run through Athens Land Trust. YCS participants will learn important environmental skills, including plant identification, invasive plant removal methods, native plant installation and maintenance. They will also develop essential soft skills in public speaking, leadership, and community outreach, and may engage the public at venues including the ALT-run West Broad Farmers Market. Ideally, participation in the Young Conservation Stewards will lead to increased employ-ability and job placement post high school graduation. This is a part-time position lasting from August through December.
Young Conservation Stewards must:
- Commit to the program by showing up to work on time and coming prepared and dressed in proper attire
- Have a reliable mode of transportation to and from work sites
- Be prepared to work in a wide range of weather conditions.
- While no prior experience is required, the willingness and ability to work outside is.
