It is a value of VYCC to work hard, while being part of a dynamic team and having fun. Each of our crews are assigned a variety of projects that will expand a crew members technical skills, as well as their interpersonal skills working with others. There is no better way to both learn about yourself and learn new job-ready skillsets than a VYCC crew!
On our Fall Young Adult Trail crew you will work with a dozen 18-24 year olds to work on projects that:
- Restore historic outdoor infrastructure at Vermont’s only National Park—Marsh-Billings Rockerfeller National Historic Park;
- Fight back against invasive plant species and help balance the Vermont ecosystem near watersheds, in meadows, and in forests;
- Help maintain the 100+ year old Appalachian and Long Trails that run along the top of the Green Mountains;
- and gain practical carpentry and light construction skills working on infrastructures at a variety of project sites.
There is no better way to be paid to work outside, gain a wide range of skills, and earn an education stipend as an AmeriCorps member on this crew! Crew work is August 23-October 30.
