What is YCC?

The Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) is a work-learn-earn program that develops an understanding and appreciation in participating youth of the nation's environment and heritage. It is administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and by the U.S. Department of the Interior. YCC offers gainful summer employment to youth, for up to eight weeks, in an outdoor setting. YCC members work on a variety of projects including building trails, maintaining fences, cleaning up campgrounds, improving wildlife habitat, and thinning timber stands. Participants do hard physical work and may be exposed to insects, adverse weather, and difficult working conditions.


The 2018 YCC Program runs from July 9th to August 17th.
