COYCC: Central Oregon Youth Conservation Corps

COYCC logo

COYCC, our seasonal summer program run in partnership with the United States Forest Service, hires young people ages 16-18 from across Central Oregon for 8 weeks of environmental conservation work. As corps members, these young people will learn job skills, earn wages and become the next generation of conservationists through projects that improve public lands and keep local communities safer from wildfire. They will forge close bonds with their crew members, learn the importance of teamwork, and complete the program with a lifelong sense of pride at what they have accomplished. This program is for Central Oregon youth only and is NOT a residential program.

The 2018 Season

The 2018 season is tentatively scheduled for June 25th through August 16th. The work schedule is Monday through Thursday, 9 hours per day. (The program will be closed on Wednesday, July 4th.) Please note: These dates might change!
