The YCC program is a well-balanced, work-learn-earn program, which develops an understanding and appreciation of the Nation’s environment and heritage. Administered by the National Park Service, the program offers gainful summer employment to young people in a healthful, outdoor atmosphere.
"Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial has been engaged with the Youth Conservation Corps program for over twenty years,” Facility Manager, Nathan Wilson said. “The program has proven to be a mutually beneficial relationship allowing student employees the opportunity to learn about National Park Service operations and resource stewardship, along with acquiring valuable work skills. In return, the park receives much needed project labor and assistance in reducing deferred maintenance."
