Interior Announces Summer Jobs Program, Cancels Park Police Furloughs

Posted by Maisha Meminger - On May 28, 2013 (EST)

The Interior Department has launched a program to provide jobs for 17,000 young people at locations on the country’s public lands, in national parks and at wildlife reserves, as the National Park Service announced it was canceling remaining furloughs for U.S. Park Police.

The new jobs program has nearly $4.2 million -- mostly from grant funding -- to support thousands of employment and mentoring opportunities for young people. The federal government will be working with local governments and private companies to help leverage opportunities and support the next generation of environmentalists. Through the program, Interior also hopes to create a 21st Century Conservation Service Corps, as outlined by President Obama.

I was told by workone about one month ago, there would not be any summer programs for the youth.
