Youth Conservation Corps


The DMV Teen Trail: Opportunities for ‘Tweens & Teens


The Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) is a summer employment program that engages youth, 15-18, in meaningful work experiences at national parks, forests, wildlife refuges, and fish hatcheries. Through their work, they’ll also have the opportunity to develop an ethic of environmental stewardship and civic responsibility. YCC programs are generally 8-10 weeks, and members are paid for their work.

Youth Conservation Corps members work in an outdoor setting on a variety of projects including building trails, maintaining fences, cleaning up campgrounds, improving wildlife habitats, environmental education planning and teaching, stream restoration, historic building preservation, and more!
