Jamey is one of the many SCA alums who got their first job as a direct result of an SCA internship. After graduating from college and spending a few months abroad, Jamey was accepted to SCA's Congressional-National Park Internship, which took him to the Interior Department in DC, where he now works, and to Acadia National Park in Maine, where he learned how conservation works at the local level. While at Acadia, Jamey saw the disproportionate influence young people can have on critical conservation projects. Among the young staff at Acadia were invasive-species eradicators, medical first-responders, trail builders, and educators. Young people helped the Park in numerous ways--from increasing the use of technology to better tell the Park's unique story to inventorying light fixtures to help the Park save electricity and preserve the night sky. Young people are making real and meaningful impacts to conservation projects like these all across the country, and Jamey is working to see that their stories are told whenever possible.
