Stimulus money re 00cots Americorps youth program Workers maintain state park grounds By Rob Kunzig rkunzig@ca pegazette.com The AmeriCorps Youth Con- servation Corps is hard at work in Cape Henlopen State Park, thanks to $153,895 granted by the Recovery Act. Sen. Ted Kaufman traveled to the park Monday, June 15, to congratulate Ameri- corps workers and thank them for their hard wore "What's great is that you'll be able to work on the environ- ment," Kaufman said, "and get the Cape straightened out." State budget cuts endangered funding for the Youth Conserva- tion Corps (YCC), an Ameri- Corps summer program that em- ploys teenagers to perform main- tenance and restoration work. But on May 15, the program re- ceived word that its request for Recovery Act funds was granted. By June 2, they had 38 volunteers assembled and training. "Opening the state park this year was a bit of a daunting task," said Charles Salkin, director of state parks. He said the YCC will perform crucial services for the state pare "This is not summer camp,,' Salkin said. "It's real important worE" Erastus Mong'are, program of- ricer for AmeriCorps Delaware, noted that the grant application was put together in a very short period of time. The proiect.'s shovel-ready status helped, but he credited Glenn Stubbolo for quickly organizing the applica- tion and submitting it to the state. Stubbolo, volunteer coordina- tor for Delaware State Parks, de- fers all credit to Amy Sue Hig- gins, director of Cape Hen- lopen's YCC program. In turn, Higgins credits her corps of workers. "We have a very passionate group of volunteers," she said. "They're being instilled with a feeling of service, an ethic of work, a sense of community." The volunteers are split into five teams and distributed throughout the state pare In lieu of normal paychecks, volunteers receive a living stipend and edu- cationai funds. Higgins said they are putting in their 35 hours - in fact, she said, many are doing ex- tra hours, unbidden. "They're doing whatever needs to be done" she said. To date, Delaware has received $778,139,159 from the Recovery Act. Kaufman urged AmeriCorps personnel to pursue more mon- ey. "There's more money out there to get us out of this," he said. Kaufman told volunteers to be tenacious - recessions are cycli- cal, he said, and a time will come where employers will fall over themselves to hire dedicated, hardworking young people. "Now get to work!" Kaufman said as a benediction, sending the volunteers to their labors. ii !!'! . T 00 HUDSONS TURN, LEWES Clear lot ready for you to build your dream home.
