Forest Service will cut youth training program

The White House will end a long-lived Forest Service program—one that has helped train a reported 3,000-plus young people a year and maintained over 1,100 employees, according to the Washington Post.

The administration’s Forest Service management will shut down multiple Job Corps Civilian Conservation centers across at least eight states, the report notes, adding that others will be handed off to private companies to manage.

According to the report, the closures will begin in September, and will constitute the biggest layoff of civil service employees since some very extensive military base realignments were implemented almost a decade ago.
