YCC- Youth Conservation Corp

Apply your stewardship skills and learn more will getting paid. Join the YCC- Youth Conservation Corp, ages 14-18; and have a job in nature local or nationally.

What would I do?

Youth Conservation Corps members work in a healthful outdoor setting on a variety of projects including building trails, maintaining fences, cleaning up campgrounds, improving wildlife habitat, environmental education planning and teaching, stream restoration, historic building preservation, and more! You’ll also participate in educational field trips where chances are you’ll see wildlife or history before your eyes, hike and stand on a mountaintop, or gaze at an ancient ruin.

What benefits would I get from participating?

Not only would you get paid to work in some of the coolest places in the country, but you will also have the chance to learn about careers with the National Park Service and gain valuable work skills that can help you get your next job! You will be working with other incredible people and hopefully you will build a lifetime bond. If you like to hike, backpack, climb, kayak, bike, horseback ride, etc national parks are perfect for that!
