The Student Conservation Association in Alaska is currently recruiting high school students age 15-19 for summer trail work and environmental restoration throughout the state. Students from all over Alaska convene to campout, build trails, cookout, and share work skills and life skills with each other. 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. Transportation stipends are available based on need.

Summer start dates begin in early June, early July, and mid-July. Some students will be invited to one of our expense-paid weekend orientations – either April 3-5 or April 10-12. Please see the attached flyer for more details.

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

SCA Alaska Recruiter Jeff Chen is available to give presentations to your students in person or via video conferencing. To schedule a presentation or to get some help with student applications, please email Jeff at jchen or call 907-717-8414.
