CANYON CITY - Youth interested in working in the Oregon Youth Conservation Corps (OYCC) can attend two workshops to get help with the application and resume process.

The Training and Economic Development Consortium of Grant County is offering the workshops from 4 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, May 17, and Monday, May 21. They will be in the Guernsey Conference Room, 120 Washington St., Canyon City.

Participants will get help with identifying transferrable skills, developing a current resume, and applications. There will be handouts for youth who are preparing their application materials at home.

According to TEC, about 35 young people will be hired to work in the OYCC program this summer. Youth age 15-21 can apply.

The Corps will work with the Prairie City and Blue Mountain ranger districts clearing wilderness trails, fencing, and doing weed removal and stream restoration projects. Other projects will be done at the historical Chinese Walls near Granite, the John Day Fossil Beds, Clyde Holliday State Park and other areas.

Application packets are available at the Oregon Employment Department Office, 120 Washington St., from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m. weekdays.

For more information on the sessions or applying, call the TEC office, 575-0251.
