Roll up your sleeves.

Vermont Youth Conservation Corps has been cultivating leaders since 1985. Our programs offer paid, outdoor service experiences for people ages 15 and up. Corps Members build skills in conservation, agriculture and leadership while improving the health of Vermont’s water, forests, working lands and outdoor recreation infrastructure. VYCC is a nonprofit organization with a mission to take action and build community by working and learning together with the land.

Since 1985




Join Us

Take Action. Build Community. Care for the Land. Get Paid.
Are you 15 or older, looking for a job you’ll never forget? Join VYCC to work outdoors in summer (and spring/fall) positions. We can’t wait to meet you!

Provide people with the resources they need to be safe and comfortable, and they will be driven by their own interests and motivation to learn. I’m shaping my ideas of leadership. This is my opportunity. I love it.

– Jing, she/her, Conservation Member & Leader

I joined VYCC because I knew it would open up opportunities in the future, I got to work outside, and work with an organization trying to make a difference.
