Mat-Su Youth Trailblazers Wanted!

trailcrew1Great Land Trust is partnering with the Student Conservation Association in Alaska for another summer of awesome trail work! Do you like being outside? Working hard? Helping our community? Then this job is for you!

SCA is currently recruiting high school students age 15-19 who live in the Mat-Su Valley to work on our Wasilla Creek trail. Students will camp out, build trails, cook meals, and gain work and life skills. Teams of eight crew members are supervised by two adult crew leaders. Students are given a $500 stipend at the successful completion of their four weeks of service to public land. Outdoor gear and food is provided. Need-based transportation stipends are available to Anchorage, where crews will launch.

Summer start dates begin in early June, mid-June, and early July.

To apply, students must visit www.thesca.org/akcrew and thoroughly complete a Youth: Crew application. Applications submitted prior to February 15th will be given priority for the April orientation. After that, crew member openings are open until filled.

For help with the application and an application fee waiver, contact SCA Alaska recruiting coordinator Jeff Chen at jchen@thesca.org or call/text 907-717-8414.
