As announced earlier, SLATE will not offer a Summer Jobs Program for Youth this year. However, Governor Nixon has announced return of his jobs initiative for young adults through State Parks Youth Corps (SPYC). Launched in 2010, SPYC provides Missouri youth with the opportunity to work outdoors improving Missouri's state parks and historic sites.
SPYC employs eligible Missourians between the ages of 17 and 23 at parks, historic sites and natural areas across Missouri, from May 1 through Dec. 31. Applications for the program are now being accepted online at thinkoutside.mo.gov.
