Youth Volunteer Corps Teacher Recommendation
Thank you for completing this recommendation for your student who is applying for the summer 2017 Youth Volunteer Corps program (YVC) at the Carolina Raptor Center. YVCs interact with visitors to share their knowledge of conservation and the natural world and get visitors engaged and excited about Carolina Raptor Center exhibits and programs.

We are looking for students who are comfortable speaking with strangers of all ages, who love nature and want to share their excitement, and who have a poised, confident manner. For more information about this program, please visit our website: www.carolinaraptorcenter.org.

This recommendation must be submitted by 5:00 pm on Wednesday, April 19th, in order for your student's application to be considered. Please allow 20-30 minutes to complete all questions. We recommend saving your answers in a Word document so you will have back-up in the event of technological problems.

This recommendation is confidential and will never be shared with your student. Thank you for your time and for your honest assessment of your student's strengths and weaknesses.

HOME SCHOOL PARENTS: Please do not fill out this form. Instead, ask another adult who works with your child to submit the recommendation form. This can be a coach, music or dance teacher, scout leader, youth group leader, or club adviser. Please ask an individual who has known your child for at least a year and who has had the opportunity to observe them in an activity where they were part of a group of peers.
