Rutgers program offering youth full-time summer jobs

Do you know of a New Jersey youth aged 17-24 who is looking for full-time summer work opportunities?

This summer, the Rutgers University Division of Diversity, Inclusion, and Civic Engagement has partnered with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection to provide jobs for youth in Camden and Pennsauken who are interested in learning more about environmental justice and sustainability.

Youth will be given the opportunity to:

  • Engage with nature while gaining valuable hands-on conservation experience
  • Understand the management and regulation of New Jersey’s air, land, and water quality
  • Develop local and invasive plant species identification skills

This program will offer youth an avenue for learning the skills necessary for pursuing a career in environmental protection, conservation, and stewardship. Youth will be provided with an orientation to environmental protection, followed by five weeks of rotational experiences across the entire state of New Jersey with learning about the environment, sustainability, field trips to aquariums and wastewater treatment plants, marking and maintaining nature trails, urban fishing program education, helping to deliver nature programs and so much more.

  • Jobs will run between July-August.
  • Full-time.
  • $15/hour
