Did you know that last year – 2019 – Northwest Youth Corps and Idaho Conservation Corps celebrated 35 years of positively impacting both young people and our public lands?
In 2019, we offered opportunities for 922 youth and young adults to earn money as well as high school credit, scholarships, and/or professional certifications, as they carried out 316,857 hours of conservation projects across Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. More importantly, these youth and young adults used their skills and knowledge to benefit their own lives as well as their communities.
Northwest Youth Corps and Idaho Conservation Corps need your support to sustain our organization during the COVID-19 public health crisis. NYC and ICC staff and board members are currently working hard with other key leaders in the conservation corps and youth development fields to be part of the post COVID recovery, by:
Now, more than ever, Northwest Youth Corps needs your help to come out on ‘the other side’ of this historic pandemic, so that we can play our part in putting the nation back to work, just as the historic Civilian Conservation Corps did during the Great Depression.
Our need is urgent and it is great.
