Small teams of young people tackle projects that benefit Vermont’s people and land.

Conservation crews:
  • Build and maintain trails,
  • Improve wildlife habitat,
  • Improve state park facilities, and
  • Reduce erosion and improve the health of our waterways.

Before VYCC I was only marginally aware of myself as a part of a greater natural world – cities were my life. I feel more comfortable interacting with other people, and I realized that everyone has an interesting story if you ask the right questions. VYCC has changed the way I think about being human – that we are not isolated, and that this planet is not only ours.”
