This summer, young Missourians will have the opportunity to gain valuable work experience
to prepare for tomorrow's careers, while enjoying the beauty and grandeur of Missouri's
state parks. The Missouri State Parks Youth Corps will challenge participants to
"Think Outside" by accomplishing interesting projects that help preserve and enhance
Missouri's state park system. In addition to developing the critical leadership
skills that will prepare them for success in future careers, the program will bolster
an appreciation for the environment and "green" concepts that are an exciting part
of Missouri's growing industries.
We are no longer accepting applications for 2016.
The Missouri State Park Youth Corps is a partnership between the local Workforce
Investment Boards and the
Missouri of Department of Economic Development and the Missouri Department of
Natural Resources’ Division of State Parks.
