Roll up your sleeves.

Vermont Youth Conservation Corps is a non-profit organization with the mission to take action and build community by working and learning together with the land. We’ve been bringing young people together, and into the outdoors, since 1985. We take action on water quality, forest health, sustainable agriculture and food access, trails, and outdoor recreation infrastructure.

Since 1985

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

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.
