VYCC’s Response to COVID-19 and Updates

January 27, 2022 | 

Vermont Youth Conservation Corps requires vaccination against COVID-19 for all year-round and seasonal staff members, including Corps Members.  

Throughout the pandemic, VYCC has taken numerous measures to ensure that staff and Corps Members stayed safe, including wearing masks, maintaining social distancing, frequent handwashing, and providing time off to get tested or to stay home if sick.  

As a part of our ongoing risk management strategy, VYCC has made a vaccination requirement to maintain the health and safety of all Corps Members, staff, and our Vermont community.  

All 2022 Corps Members will need to be vaccinated by their first day. 

All VYCC employees must adhere to this policy, with the exception of those with documented medical conditions that prevent such vaccination. As part of the onboarding process, we will require all employees, including Corps Members, to submit proof of vaccination. This information will be confidential.   

Thank you for doing your part to keep our community safe and healthy amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. If you have any questions or need help finding resources to become fully vaccinated, please feel free to reach out to our Admin Manager, Kay.
