This summer, young Missourians will have the opportunity to gain valuable work experience
to prepare for tomorrows 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.
The Missouri State Park Youth Corps is a partnership between the Missouri Workforce Investment Boards
Missouri Department of
Natural Resources’ Division of State Parks.
