Orientations are almost here!

If you have been selected to join COYCC this summer, you are required to attend one orientation. There are 7 scheduled throughout the region during the end of May and beginning of June. You can attend whichever one you like - you don't have to come to the one hosted in your town (though we recommend that you do, since we'll be talking about location-specific information at some point).

These orientations will take approximately one hour for those who are not AmeriCorps members. If you choose to pursue the AmeriCorps scholarship during your time in COYCC, you will have to stay 1-1.5 hours longer for AmeriCorps orientation. We will do our best to keep things short.

If you want to keep things moving quickly, please finish all your paperwork BEFORE orientation. (You can download the paperwork from this page.)

Don't forget to bring your ID documents (see the hiring packet for more information) to orientation night!

If you aren't sure if you've been hired or have questions about the orientation process, please call or email ( Ask for Yancy.

See you in the forest!
