Youth Conservation Corps

The Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) is a summer employment program for young women and men, from all segments of society, who work, learn and earn together by doing projects on public land. Since 1971, the YCC has operated as a work-earn-learn program for youth ages 15 through 18. The program is administered by the U.S. Forest Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the National Park Service. Youth are provided an opportunity to increase their self-esteem and learn self discipline. They learn work ethics and relate with peers and supervisors. At the same time, this experience helps to build lasting cultural bridges between youth from various social, economic, ethnic, and racial backgrounds. Learn more about Youth Conservation Corps programs with the National Park Service.
