Youth Conservation Corps
Physical outdoor work will include rehabilitation of trails, campground restoration, and a wide variety of maintenance projects. Corps members will work together under adult leadership and develop work skills while learning firsthand about environmental and conservation issues.
Fridays will be spent participating in resource education, recreation, orientation activities, guest and staff presentations, and day hikes in Yosemite National Park.
No previous experience is required, but a willingness and ability to work in a physically active outdoor program, getting along with others, and maintaining a positive attitude are essential for success.
