Company Description The Vermont Youth Conservation Corps is a 501c3 service, conservation, and youth development organization. Our mission is to teach young people personal responsibility through meaningful work that connects us to the land, community, and one another. To instill these skills and values, VYCC enrolls young people in paid work opportunities. Our model is strong and simple: Youth Corps Members work together in small groups, guided by highly trained Crew Leaders, to complete high priority projects in conservation and agriculture.
Headquartered on historic Vermont farmland, our Food and Farm program employs youth and young adults in the Health Care Share, a community-based public health project that connects Vermont families unable to afford or access nutritious food with a weekly share of farm fresh produce.
