Conservation Corps is pleased to introduce Jonathan Goldenberg, our new Summer Youth Corps program coordinator. He takes over for Nina Eagin, who served as program coordinator for three summers with grace, wisdom and a spirit of fun. Jonathan joined AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps right out of high school and served in the southeastern United States in 2003-2004, then as a crew leader for Conservation Corps Minnesota in the summers of 2005 and 2006. Most recently, he worked in staff positions with the Summer Youth Corps in 2011 and 2012. Read more about Jonathan.
At the same time, we bid adieu to Nina, who started as a crew leader with the Summer Youth Corps in 2008 and helped pilot the Youth Outdoors program. During her time as SYC program coordinator, Nina directed great programs in the midst of state government shutdowns, storms that devastated the camp and a new four-week program model. She also greatly improved the way we integrate deaf and hard-of-hearing young people into our programs. Good luck, Nina!
