Jean Palmer, a family friend and well-wisher of the Bhutanese community in the Burlington area - asks that you read the following information regarding possible summer jobs for male and female Bhutanese (age 16 -24). >>>>>>
The Vermont Youth Conservation Corps (www.vycc.org) hires young women and men ages 16 -24 who work and study together under adult leadership to complete important conservation projects such as state park management, trail maintenance and backcountry construction. I have worked with this organization before and they do great work. They are committed to having diverse crews and are excited by the possibility of having some Bhutanese young people on their crews. They hire for 4 week sessions during the summer and the pay is $322. per week. This is a great opportunity to make some money, develop leadership skills, improve your English reading, writing and conversation, learn job skills, and make new friends. It is a great job reference for anything you might want to do in the future. There will be an Information Session with VYCC staff at the Community Health Center of Burlington on Thursday May 14 at 4 p.m. Call: Jean Palmer for more information - 864-6309 ext. 181.
Damian, Beda Bhandari's friend, states that his son Patrick worked for VYCC and enjoyed the work experience very much. Patrick also enjoyed the travel and the opportunity to see many areas in Vermont while he worked for VYCC.
Summer job opportunity for 16 to 24 year old Bhutanese (during summer school vacation)
The VERMONT YOUTH CONSERVATION CORPS - VYCC is currently accepting applications for Corps Members to work on small crews completing high-priority environmental conservation projects across the state of Vermont. Click here to see some example projects that have been completed in prior summers >>> http://www.vycc.org/projects/pastprojects.html Each summer, VYCC crews restore trails, streams, historical sites and natural areas, as well as manage Vermont State Parks. Working for the VYCC gives you a chance to make a lasting contribution to Vermont's communities and landscape.
The VYCC is an intense and challenging experience, full of long days and hard work. It is also an immeasurably rich experience with many opportunities for growth and learning. As a VYCC Corps Members, you need to be prepared to work hard and learn more than you could possibly imagine about your surroundings and yourself.
Our different crew types offer increased levels of challenge and responsibility for Corps Members who work with us over several sessions.
The VYCC is a statewide, year-round, non-profit conservation and education organization with the mission of teaching individuals to take personal responsibility for their actions. Each year we enroll over 300 Corps Members and full-time AmeriCorps Members, aged 16-24, to work, live, and study together in small groups. All of our crews complete priority conservation, agriculture, park management, and disaster relief projects throughout Vermont and beyond under the guidance of highly trained leaders.
Since 1985 the VYCC has provided young people from every county and nearly every town in Vermont the opportunity to gain valuable natural resource training and education. The VYCC has completed several million dollars worth of priority conservation work in Vermont through partnerships with agencies and organizations, such as the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks, and Recreation, Vermont Agency of Transportation, Natural Resources Conservation Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Forest Service, National Park Service, and Vermont's Green Mountain Club.
