Crew in Your Community RFP

The Rhode Island Natural History Survey (RINHS) is requesting proposals from communities across the state for “Crew in your Community: Youth Conservation League Stewardship & Service Day”.  Up to 4 land organizations (e.g. towns, land trusts, etc.) will be selected to receive one day of pro bono Youth Conservation League (YCL) labor during the summer 2011 field season.

The 2011 YCL follows a successful pilot in 2010 conducted through the Forest Health Works Project. The 2011 crew will consist of 6 Rhode Island high school students, directly supervised by an adult crew leader and assistant crew leader. Crew members are competitively selected and paid for their time and therefore expected to work hard for the partner organizations. They get things done!

For more infomation, download the RFP & Application for community groups.

Youth Crew member applications will be posted in mid-April
