Youth Conservation Corps
The Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) program is designed to raise awareness of the environment through the work of the National Park Service. In this program youth are introduced to maintenance operations as well as cultural and natural resources related projects. Individuals will perform various duties throughout the park, including gardening/grounds keeping, construction, and other general labor activities. The operation of small equipment such as mowers, line trimmers, and leaf blowers is expected. Throughout the program employees will receive training in areas of professional job skills, cultural and natural resource protection, and environmental awareness. In addition, employees will receive training in Safety, Basic First Aid and CPR.
Our goal in the National Park Service is to provide a safe, educational, and enjoyable work experience. The YCC program gives youth an opportunity to gain job training and skills that will enhance their future careers in our nation's workforce.

Did You Know?
Mules are a cross between two animals, a mare (female horse) and a jack (male donkey). This hybrid gives us that smart, sure-footed, strong, high endurance animal with that loving personality that Muir enjoyed in a creature called "Brownie".
