YESC registration open for summer program

-A A +A

Registration for the Y Earth Service Corps (YESC) 2014 summer program is open for any interested youth ages 11-17.
This program is a summer-long, hands-on experience for youth that teaches leadership development, environmental stewardship, service learning projects and cross-cultural awareness.
This summer’s YESC program will focus on improving Los Alamos trails and on caring for the Hilltop Garden. Participants will also have a part in choosing to become involved in various other community service projects as well.
The YESC summer program runs from 8 a.m.-noon Monday through Thursday starting June 9.
The YESC participants will meet at the Los Alamos Teen Center each morning and will be returned to the Teen Center at noon each day. However, the YESC program will also provide opportunities for the participants to go on fun, afternoon field trips and hikes, as well as a couple of camp-outs throughout the summer.
Registration takes place at the main Y facility. To register, the perspective YESC participant and a legal guardian will need to come-in to complete the YESC registration forms, and payment is due at the time of registration.
Three payment options are available to participants depending on the amount families are able to pay: $550, $475, or $375. In addition to grant funding, these participant fees help to cover the cost of the YESC program, including staff wages, transportation cost, materials for activities and projects, work tools, fieldtrips and camping trips.
