All of our 2020 Crews are hired!

A VYCC Crew will get you outside on a team with other young adults to work hard and play hard. You’ll have the chance to tackle projects like trail building in Vermont’s lush woods or improving and protecting local parks and waterways in your own town.  While we are finished hiring for 2020, read on to find out who our Crews are and what they do so you can start planning to apply in 2021.

Dig into how on a VYCC crew.

Each year, VYCC pays over 250 young people (Corps Members) like you seeking challenge in a safe and supportive learning environment, where you will learn about yourself, your peers, and the land. You will improve your professional skills and finish your season with a deep sense of pride and accomplishment. VYCC is a chance to get your hands dirty as you complete outdoor projects that improve the lives of Vermonters.

And, you will have the kind of fun that looks like this.

VYCC is challenging by design. We believe that young people discover their true potential when things get tough. Our programs set you up for success with training, support, and resources that nurture the development of:

  • Grit & Resiliency—When you join a VYCC Crew, you are tested physically, emotionally, and mentally. There will be rain, bugs, and mud but these experiences provide opportunities to rise to the challenge. With the support of your Crew, you will become stronger and more resilient.
  • Service — VYCC is dedicated to making this world a better place, but we can’t do it without you. With your help, we will build trails that increase access to the outdoors, create backcountry infrastructure that support our state lands, grow fresh food for Vermonters in need, and improve water quality. Join the hundreds of VYCC Corps Members who make a difference in Vermont every year.
  • Leadership— Leaders aren’t born, they are inspired. Every day on a VYCC crew will be filled with opportunities to engage, aspire, and grow. This is your chance to be the spark that ignites your crew and your community.

Every season, VYCC Corps Members rise to the occasion when faced with the hard work that defines life on a VYCC crew. It takes a willingness to push yourself and, for this reason, VYCC may not be for everyone. But if you are ready to dig in, with a spirit of curiosity and courage, then this is the place for you. Believe in yourself, you got this.

Diverse crews are strong crews. We believe we are strongest when VYCC represents all members of our community. We are committed to creating an inclusive and diverse experience for our Corps Members. VYCC, along with many other Corps in the country, are committed to reducing barriers and ensuring that all people can see themselves on a VYCC crew.

“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.”
