Description & Services
Description The Conservation Youth Corps program (CYC) engages youth from all over the CVC watershed in hands-on, environmental stewardship and restoration work. During the summer, high school students work on crews of 9 youth alongside 1 CVC staff and other community partners to help ‚Äúnurture nature in our community." For one week in the summer, volunteers will help with projects like stream restoration, habitat creation, and removing invasive species. Each week, CYC'ers learn first-hand the impacts that environmental issues like climate change have on our local ecosystems.  
Eligible applicants are watershed residents at least 14 years of age, have completed grade 9 and be returning to high school. Participants are picked up each day from a local high school at 8:00 a.m. and returned to the pickup location for 3:00 p.m. Participants can earn up to 35 community service hours.
