The deadline to apply for one of 5 available Mark Twain National Forest military veteran interships is Friday, March 28, 2014. Mark Twain National Forest has partnered with Mt. Adams Institute to offer military veterans five, one-time recreation internships during 2014. The program is funded by the Corporation for National and Community Service. VetsWork AmeriCorps participants are temporarily placed at federal land management agencies, such as USDA’s Mark Twain National Forest, where they learn various career paths. The five, field-going Mark Twain National Forest VetsWork AmeriCorps military veteran field-going internships will be located at Ava, Doniphan, Potosi, and two positions will be in Rolla. Each selected intern will receive $12,100 living allowance for the 45-week internship. Upon successful completion of the internship, they will receive an additional $5,550 education stipend. The stipend may be used to repay qualified student loans or for further education at a higher learning accredited institution, vocational or trade schools. For those who qualify, there will be basic medical insurance for interns only. Qualified interns must be 21-35 years old and honorably discharged US military veterans. Selected interns will also qualify for other available federal jobs for 120 days after completing the internship. The internship begins April 7, 2014. For additional information, contact Aaron Stanton at the Mt. Adams Institute, (253) 653-4231 or Jane Mobley, the Mark Twain National Forest manpower development specialist at (573) 996-2153.
