BLM-Alaska Youth Initiative Program FY 2013: BLM Alaska has youth funding available to work with youth organizations and conservation corps for the purposes of introducing youth ages 16 to 25 year of age to careers in the BLM and accomplishing needed work. BLM is interested in working with youth to complete conservation projects that enhance the students classroom learning by providing them opportunities to gain experience, learn about public lands, further their understanding and appreciation of natural and cultural resources, and pique their interest in natural resource careers. Young men and women who participate in the rehabilitation and restoration of our nations natural, cultural, historic, archaeological, recreational, comprehensive environmental field studies and service programs that advance ecological literacy, conservation, and environmental research in the areas of public land restoration, forestry, and trail work and scenic treasures will gain an increased appreciation and understanding of our public lands and of the value of public service, and are likely to become life-long advocates for those values. The youth will be provided with education and work opportunities that provide comprehensive environmental field studies and service programs that advance ecological literacy, conservation, and environmental research in the areas of public land restoration, forestry, and trail work. Internships may include, but are not limited to, projects related to archeology, botany, ecology, national landscape conservation system lands, recreation, soils, water, and wildlife.
