Vermont Youth Conservation Corps (VYCC) is a nonprofit conservation, farm, and education organization that teaches youth and young adults personal responsibility through meaningful work that connects them to the land, community, and one another.
VYCC’s two major programs—Conservation and Farm—provide a variety of opportunities, including building trails, constructing bridges, improving waterways, farming, and addressing complex issues of hunger, nutrition, food access, and responsible land use.
Corps Members are ages 15-24 and serve on 6- to 10-member crews all year long. Every VYCC position offers meaningful employment, connections with the natural world, and the challenge of completing high quality community service projects. Working alongside peers, Corps Members are part of a culture dedicated to service, self-improvement, workforce development, and professional success.
