Do you care about the future of youth conservation services?
Then help protect and expand them.
Call, write, and email your Congressman today and ask them to co-sponsor The Youth Corps Act of 2011 (H.R. 711).
This bill was first introduced by Representative Hirono (HI) with co-sponsor support from Representatives Andrews (NJ), Boswell (IA), Costa (CA), Grijalva (AZ), Kildee (MI), Luján (NM), and Matsui (CA). If passed the Act will amend the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 to provide for the establishment of Youth Corps programs and wider dissemination of the Youth Corps model.
Passage would expand opportunities for young adults to protect our public lands and equip the conservation leaders of tomorrow with the hands-on skills they need to succeed.
On June 1st Representative Hirono will send a letter out to other members of the House asking for their support.
Call your Representative today to let him or her know that strengthening national youth conservation services is an important tool to help address conservation and environmental concerns on public lands and in our communities. Here is how you can contact your Representative:
Your calls are extremely important. Representatives track and count the calls they receive in deciding how they will vote on an issue. Please call your Representative this Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.
