OMB Control Number: 0596–0084. Summary of Collection: The Youth Conservation Corps Act of 1970, as amended (Pub. L. 93–408), and 16 U.S.C. 1701–1706, Chapter 37, Youth Conservation Corps and Public Lands Corps, authorizes the USDA Forest Service (FS) and Department of the Interior agencies Fish and Wildlife Service and National Park Service to collect information on applications and medical history forms to evaluate the eligibility of youths 15 to 18 years old for employment with the Youth Conservation Corps (YCC). FS and the Department of Interior cooperate to provide seasonal employment for eligible youth and in doing so prepare the young adults of this country for the ultimate responsibility of maintaining and managing these resources for the American people. Need and Use of the Information: Youth, ages 15–18, who seek training and employment with participating agencies through the YCC must complete an application form (FS– 1800–18) and once selected for employment must complete a medical history form (FS–1800–3). The applicant’s parents or guardian must sign both forms. The application form is used in the random selection process and the medical history form provides information needed to determine certification of suitability, any special medical or medication needs, and a file record for the Federal Government and participants. If these forms were not used, the Federal government’s ability to oversee the Youth Conservation Corps program would be greatly impaired. The organizational and liability issues that would result from inability to collect this information needed to manage the program would be virtually insurmountable.
