YCC Crew Leader Now Enrolling May 2017 — 21 Years of Age or Older
Legislated nationally as a permanent program of the US Forest Service in 1974, the Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) engages young people in paid work on needed conservation projects while providing environmental education opportunities that allow them to "learn while they earn." In 2017, the US Forest Service is partnering with MCC to offer the program by engaging MCC members as Crew Leaders to YCC crews.
Serving as a YCC Crew Leader with MCC will have a lifelong impact not only on you, but also on the communities, landscapes, and teens enrolled in YCC. You’ll discover unexpected abilities in yourself along with the enduring self-confidence to effectively lead young people toward accomplishing even the most challenging tasks. In the end, it is your commitment to serving others, starting with the youth on your crew, that yields the most satisfaction and the greatest enjoyment.
Leaders serve in MCC’s Northern Rockies Region (Kalispell, MT). Leaders receive a $626.50 bi-weekly stipend and a $1,527.45 education award upon completion of service term.
