El Centro Students Getting the Job Done!

This year El Centro Field Office has hired seven students as part of the Federal Student Educational Employment Program.  These students come to El Centro with a diversity of skills and talents to help further the mission of the BLM. 

“These students are the future of the BLM.  We are proud to work with them in building their careers in public service” said Margaret Goodro, El Centro Field Manager.

Students working for the BLM gain hands on experiences in the day-to-day operations in a busy field office and are serving in critical roles working on priority renewable and recreation projects.

This program provides Federal employment opportunities to students who are enrolled or accepted for enrollment as degree seeking students taking at least a half-time academic, technical, or vocational course load in an accredited high school, technical, vocational, 2 or 4 year college or university, graduate or professional school.
