About the YCC Program
The type of work to be performed includes exotic weed control, backcountry trail maintenance, cave restoration, cave trail maintenance, environmental education, and facility maintenance. Applicants must be in very good physical condition. This work can be challenging, often requiring travel to seldom seen remote backcountry locations, and it can be strenuous, hot, dirty and sweaty. If regular exercise is not already part of an applicant's lifestyle, they are strongly discouraged from applying.
Conservation education is incorporated into the YCC program. This education will highlight the diversity and responsibilities of different National Park Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service areas, introduce participants to the natural and cultural history of the local area, and may involve field trips to surrounding sites.
