"Here, students grow as people as they help our environment grow, through teamwork and responsibility."

"Our Youth Conservation Body is a huge advantage for the County, and one of the main reasons why our Open Spaces remain clean, safe and beautiful," said Middlesex County Freeholders' Director Ronald G. Rios. "The county wants to promote good environmental practices and safe educational activities for our students, and this program offers the best of both goals."

Activities include the construction of trails, the cleaning of waste, the removal of invasive species and the improvement of wildlife habitats.

In addition, candidates must be able to walk for several miles and stay for long periods of time, willing to work outdoors in various weather conditions and able to use various hand tools.

The Somerset County Vocational & Technical High School (SCVTHS) and Raritan Valley Community College (RVCC) have entered into an agreement to launch a cosmetic completion program (CCP). The CCP will allow a maximum of six cosmetology students each year to complete the hours and curriculum required to support the examination of the state council at the RVCC at the end of high school. The CCP is taught by skilled workforce educators and is in line with the guidelines of the New Jersey Cosmetology Council.

Beginning in the 2019-20 school year, SCVTHS will admit six juniors in the CCP, which will allow them to earn 575 hours to be transferred to RVCC.
