Indiana hiring 2,000 workers ages 18-24 for summer

Indiana's Young Hoosiers Conservation Corps is accepting applications for about 2,000 summer jobs with the Departments
of Transportation and Natural Resources.

The corps will hire people ages 18 to 24 for jobs paying $8.50 per hour and lasting about 16 weeks. Some hired as supervisors
will work 18 to 24 weeks and earn $9.50 per hour. All of the positions will begin no earlier than May 3 and end by October
2.

The state is using about $12 million in federal stimulus funds for the jobs, which are open to residents of all but one of
Indiana's 92 counties. Marion County uses its portion of stimulus funds on a separate summer jobs program.

The work includes creating recreational trails, restoring natural habitats, emergency road cleanups and traffic sign maintenance.
