Meet the Youth Forest Council Interns! This January, the Community Tree Preservation Division launched the Youth Forest Council, an immersive, yearlong paid internship connecting young people (ages 16-19) in Austin to careers in natural resources and public service. Twelve young Austinites have joined DSD’s Tree Team and will be working alongside staff to further the goals of Austin’s Urban Forest Plan. The interns represent 6 different council districts, 7 local high schools, and 3 colleges. They were chosen from among 40 applicants who applied to the first year of the program through a hiring process that included a written application and in-person interview. Interested in connecting with the Youth Forest Council interns further? Email youthforestcouncil@austintexas.gov to join an email list for their future events. February 2020
