*Community Partner Project Proposal Application – NOW AVAILABLE*

Clean Nova Scotia is pleased to announce that the community partner project
application forms are now available for the Nova Scotia Youth Conservation
Corps 2012 summer program. This is an opportunity for Nova Scotian
organizations to deliver an environmental project this summer with
financial support for the wages of two to four youth.

The NSYCC partners with non-profit community organizations, colleges,
universities, municipalities and other community groups to provide
meaningful work experience in the environmental field for youth *age 17 to
30*. The NSYCC does not consider projects that are of direct economic
benefit to a business or that involve work normally carried out by
unionized employees.

The NSYCC seeks community partners who are geographically represented
across the province. We also strive to offer work experience in the
following six focus areas:

1. habitat conservation, restoration and enhancement

2. education and awareness

3. research

4. air quality

5. watershed quality

6. waste management

Community partners may submit multiple applications for different projects.
Organizations may request crews of between two and four youth to complete a
project. The NSYCC contributes 75% of project labour costs, while the
community partner is responsible for 25% of project labour costs and all
other project costs. The NSYCC labour cost fee structure for the full
summer program is as follows:

*Number of NSYCC Crew Members*

*Community Partner*

The deadline for Community Partner project application forms is *Friday,
April 6, 2012* at 4pm.
