Grant Description

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) in the Northeast Region intends to award funds to up to five organizations for a period not to exceed five years. The funds are intended to provide an introductory developmental educational experience of natural resource careers to young people, including culturally, ethnically and economically diverse students, through training, hands-on experience, and mentoring at National Wildlife Refuges and other USFWS programs in the Northeast Region. Under this program, individuals and/or groups of youth and young adults: - will be introduced to natural resource careers through hands-on work with, and training by, natural resource professionals employed by the USFWS. - will be given the opportunity to serve either seasonal or year-round assignments. - will be introduced to various real-world conservation and rehabilitation activities such as invasive species management, habitat restoration, wildlife management, public education, and interpretation and communications through work assignments and informal and/or formal training sessions provided by USFWS employees. - will be provided feedback for their future growth and may receive consideration for future employment with the USFWS.
