Meet Our Crews In Your Community!

July 31, 2018 | 

One of the best parts of our Community Crews is that they are right in your local parks, trails, and sometimes even right downtown in your town/city! These Crews employ local youth (ages 15-18) to work on public works and infrastructure projects to improve public spaces, erosion mitigation, and trail integrity. Consider yourself invited to go “meet a crew” at one of these upcoming community events this summer. The Crew will be easy to spot in their sharp VYCC green uniforms! They are eager to tell you all about what they are doing and learning. For crew lunches or dinners, it would be lovely to have RSVPs so we know to expect you! Please email Dan Bailey.
