Aspen Young Leaders FellowshipThe Aspen Young Leaders Fellowship (AYLF) is an extension of the Aspen Institute's core values-based work to develop a global community of entrepreneurial leaders. The Fellowship is a place-based, multi-site initiative that will inform the next generation of local, purpose-driven leaders. Fellows are be selected based on signs of strong leadership potential, qualities, behaviors and traits, not the best grades or even school attendance. The Fellowship then translates this potential into reality through intensive values-focused dialogues, community-focused social venture projects, and engagement with current leaders. As new cohorts are selected each year, a cross-section of leaders grows in each community developing a critical mass of leaders in each region. AYLF cohorts are intentionally diverse with respect to race, socioeconomic status, gender, religion, and ability, with special emphasis on low-income populations. Cohorts meet nine times over 15 months. The curriculum focuses on “Self in Society,” and “Community Impact,” with a paid summer social venture project developed by each member of the cohort, which must be designed to directly impact the community. During the creation of the social venture project, the fellows will develop the venture in response to a community need, engage in intensive interviews and analysis of the need, develop prototypes to test based upon the analysis, and iterate on the idea as data is captured. The social venture project work aligns with what is learned during the nine seminar sessions – values-based leadership, specific innovation skills, and development of the social venture capacity. Fellows receive virtual coaching and support to ensure that the social venture project is implemented through a rigorous testing and iterating process that gets to the most effective outcome. The goal is for the social ventures to address a community need, create local jobs in the fulfillment of that goal and act as a connection for Fellows to elect to stay in the region and build out the project.

Summer High School Weather CampThe NOAA-CREST weather camp is a two week program for high school students from the New York City metropolitan area. It runs during the second half of July, and is offered free of charge to 10-15 students selected via an application process. This is a fairly new program, so if interested don't hesitate to contact the camp director (listed below) to request an application: your chances are better than you think!

The first week is a day camp on the campus of the City College of New York.

Experts on such topics as severe storms and climate will speak and answer questions.

During the second week the camp moves to Long Island to be near the local National Weather Service (NWS) office located on the campus of Brookhaven National Laboratories. We will camp within walking distance of a beach on the north shore of Long Island, and each morning will go to the (NWS) for in depth study of weather phenomena, with the afternoons devoted to field observations of the sea breeze effect, the urban heat island, the surface environment and clouds. There are opportunities to go inside the radar dome, or to help launch weather balloons.

Youth Conservation CorpsYellowstone will offer its Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) program for the 28th consecutive summer in 2017. A month-long residential program will be offered for young people between the ages of 15 and 18 years of age.

The YCC experience allows 62 teen enrollees and staff the opportunity to learn, work, and recreate in Yellowstone National Park. The program is challenging, educational, and fun, and offers participants opportunities to expand their horizons while building skills that will benefit them for a lifetime. No previous wilderness experience is required, but a willingness and ability to work in a physically active outdoor program, get along well with others, and maintain a positive attitude are essential for success.

Teen enrollees will be selected from across the country to participate in this summer program. Enrollees will work 40 hours a week and receive the federal minimum wage ($7.25/hour) with daily deductions for room, board, and laundry facilities (~$10/day). Healthy food options will be provided by the YCC Cook or prepared by staff and youth while camping. While this diet might be different than what you are used to, the goal is to provide highly nutritious, healthy meals to sustain youth during a work program. YCC participants will work in a variety of weather and terrain conditions while completing projects which may include: fence and bench building; trail construction and/or maintenance; installing "bear boxes;" general maintenance work; painting/staining; exotic plant control; and working with the visiting public.

Some projects will take place in remote backcountry locations within Yellowstone, requiring work crews to camp out for up to five days. When crews are based in the front country, they will either camp or stay at the YCC facility near Mammoth Hot Springs which provides dormitory facilities and a large dining hall for meals and meetings.

Enrollees will also spend time participating in resource education, recreation, and NPS and other agency career orientation activities. Many of these activities are scheduled in the evenings and on weekends. Activities may include: hiking, rafting, fishing, ranger-led programs, guest speakers, enrollee and staff presentations, assisting field rangers and/or scientists, and trips throughout the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
