The Washington Department of Ecology plans to hire more than 60 teenagers for summer jobs on Ecology Youth Corps road crews.
In 2016, youth corps crews picked up 1.2 million pounds of litter and cleaned 5,445 miles of roads statewide. The program first started in 1975.
Teens would work 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., typically Mondays through Thursdays, in one of two 16-day sessions: June 26 to July 20, or July 24 to Aug. 17. Pay is $11 an hour.
Applicants must be ages 14-17 by their first day of employment. Applications are due April 11 and are available at high school counseling offices and at Ecology’s website, www.ecy.wa.gov.
