Conservation Corps Newfoundland and Labrador (CCNL) is currently seeking proposals for funding through the Green Team Program. Community Partners are eligible to receive funding and assistance from the Conservation Corps associated with hiring youth to work on their proposed community project. CCNL searches for projects that meet the following criteria; involve the enhancement, restoration and sustainable development of natural or cultural resources; provide young people with an opportunity to develop leadership, teamwork and employment skills; and demonstrate broad community / regional support and partnerships. Successful projects are those that provide opportunities for teamwork, creative thinking and problem solving and which contribute to long-term sustainable development in the region. Participants should gain solid skills through meaningful community work. Community partnerships and contributions are important as well, and are taken into account when reviewing proposals.
Not-for-profits groups are eligible to apply to the Green Team Program. Educational institutions, regional economic development boards, private sector organizations (small business), provincial and federal governments are also eligible to apply but are encouraged to partner with a local community group.
