About Conservation Youth Corps

A week with the Conservation Youth Corps program involves fun, learning and hard work!

You will be part of a crew of students with your own crew leader. You will get picked up at a designated location in the morning and dropped off in the afternoon at the spot, Monday through Friday.

It’s a great week! Monday will be an orientation and team-building day; Tuesday to Friday will be work days. You will be working in Conservation Parks and public lands in your community.

Examples of work tasks can include: building and maintaining trails and fencing, building bird boxes, and creating habitat structures. All training and tools will be provided.

It won’t be all work. Volunteers will enjoy opportunities for fun and exploration too!
