Information About the Careers in Natural Resources Initiative — The Careers in Natural Resources Initiative grew from an ongoing concern that youth conservation corps and other youth-serving environmental organizations face in guiding their alumni into natural resource careers. Since 2012, more than 90 federal, state and local agencies, non-profit organizations and higher education institutions have worked collaboratively to raise youth awareness of careers in our field, reduce barriers in the state and federal application processes, and increase access to information about careers and available jobs. Projects of the Initiative have included a 124-page “How-To Guide for Pursuing a Career in Natural Resources,” participation at local career fairs, organization of a career exploration week for high school students, and collaboration on the new Job Center portion of the Get Outdoors Colorado website.
