First, A Little About Us…
Our mission is to teach young people personal responsibility through meaningful work that connects us to the land, community, and one another. Youth and young adults (ages 15-24) join VYCC for practical and hands-on work, personal growth, and deep connection to the natural world by working on farm and conservation crews across the state. VYCC is Vermont’s leading environmental and educational organization that provides inspiring and rewarding work opportunities for youth. Our program model is: small teams, well-trained leaders, and diverse crews working to complete projects that benefit the broader public.
Our work is guided by the belief that every young person deserves the chance to work hard and to make meaningful contributions. We believe that youth need structured and well-led opportunities to practice leadership, teamwork, and professional skills. These beliefs are evident in our tagline: Today’s Youth, Tomorrow’s Leaders.
We have periodic full-time VYCC staff positions at our headquarters and seasonal positions to support our Vermont farm and conservation youth and young adult crews. We also hire seasonal positions (and youth and young adult crews) for our partners North Carolina Youth Conservation Corps (NCYCC). All open positions are located further down this page.
