Central Oregon Youth Conservation Corps


Thank you to everyone that applied, we'll see you this summer!

COYCC, our seasonal summer program run in partnership with the United States Forest Service, hires young people from across Central Oregon for 8 weeks of natural resources 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. The program employs over 70 Central Oregon teens each summer. This is not a residential program and is geared toward local youth.
