The Shore Corps Summer Leadership Program is the perfect opportunity for high school and college students to earn community service hours during the summer while also learning leadership and life skills. 

Shore Corps is a service learning program for students, ages 14-18 focused on job training, environmental stewardship and community development. 
Students must be available to work Mon/Wed/Fri from July 5th to August 11th, 2017

Students are all assigned to working with a local business in the mornings and then spend afternoons outdoors on environmental conservation and community service projects. Students all take part in CPR and water safety training and outdoor recreational activities including biking, swimming, kayaking and surfing in a safe and supportive environment.

The program serves as a platform for teens to cultivate a road map for their high school and post-high school journey, demonstrate leadership skills and inspire other young people in their community.

Students who are turning 14 by June 1st, 2017 are eligible to apply by submitting the online application by April 5th, 2017 to be included in the selection process. After submitting the application, students will be contacted for interviews.

All students in the Shore Corps Summer Program will receive community service hours for their participation. Shore Corps Summer Program is part of the NYC DYCD Summer Youth Employment Program. While not required, we encourage any students applying for the Shore Corps Summer Program to register with DYCD SYEP. Click here to learn more about DYCD SYEP.
