INTERNSHIPS

NATURAL RESOURCE INTERNSHIP PROGRAM 16-30

Internships are designed to engage youth and young adults in valuable work experiences within natural resources management agencies and non-profits. Internships allow participants to consider or advance careers and education in natural resources. RMYC provides support to all internships while the intern works under the daily supervision of the hosting public lands management agency, or non-profit. Partners include the United States Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management, the National Park Service, the Colorado Youth Corps Association, and a growing circle of agency and non-profit partners.  Please refer to position descriptions for each internship type below.

Upon successful completion of the season and at least 640 hours, interns with qualify for the Public Land Corps Hiring Authority which gives priority hiring when applying for jobs with the USFS.  It would take two years of year-round work with the USFS to qualify at the same level.
