VYCC’s Conservation Program engages young people in hands-on projects that benefit
Vermont’s environment and communities. The work of a Conservation Crew includes
trail construction and maintenance, carpentry, water quality improvement, and forest
management. Conservation Camping Crews tackle projects all across Vermont, moving
from one project to another as they work and live together as a group for weeks at a
time. Conservation Day Crews are rooted in a community and work but do not live together as a group. Conservation Crew
Leaders are essential to the success of any Conservation Crew and their efforts have a
significant impact on habitat, water quality, and outdoor recreation in Vermont.
VYCC is seeking Crew Leaders who can inspire the next generation of world changers. A
successful Crew Leader is able to foster an inclusive and supportive crew community,
help Crew Members navigate challenges and celebrate successes, and provide
opportunities for personal and professional growth. VYCC is challenging by design.
There will be mud, bugs, sore feet, and tired hands. But there will also be sunny days,
campfires, personal connection, and an ability to enact positive change. If you are excited
to dig in, get dirty, and help make communities and individuals stronger and more
resilient, this job is for you.
We are now hiring summer and fall Leaders! Check out our website for more details or email Recruitment@vycc.org
