Newsflash 2022

The Portland Youth Corps program will open their Summer 2022 applications online beginning Monday, March 7 through Sunday, March 27, 2022. The program seeks to fill 26 volunteer positions, and is open to youth ages 14-17 who live in Portland. Applicants must be at least 14 years of age at the start of their chosen session. 

The program, a collaboration between the City of Portland, Maine Audubon, and Portland Parks Conservancy, was created to promote personal and professional growth through community service, environmental stewardship, and hands-on conservation opportunities within Portland’s parks. 

On Tuesday, March 1, at 6:00 PM, interested students and educators can learn more about the program via a Zoom Info Session and Q&A.

The program offers a choice of two four-week sessions during the summer, both Monday through Friday: 9 AM to 4 PM.   

Session 1: June 20- July 15, 2022
Session 2: July 18 - August 12, 2022
