Montpelier Youth Conservation Corps (MYCC)
Applications are now closed.
Are you a local youth entering grades 10+? Are you interested in conservation work and helping your community?
Members of the Montpelier Youth Conservation Corps (MYCC) have the opportunity to work hard and have fun as part of a small conservation focused team. This summer, MYCC will be working to protect our natural surroundings while enhancing recreational opportunities in Montpelier.
This is a paid 30 hours/week position which runs Tuesday-Friday from 8:30am -4:00pm. The program is available to High School aged students in Central VT. MYCC members may work on a number of projects centered on creating a more connected, sustainable Montpelier. Whether building bridges in the North Branch Park, harvesting crops at the FEAST Farm, or creating new trails in the Hubbard Park Expansion, every project is meaningful and community-based.
This summer we'll have two 3-week long sessions. New members can sign up for 1 session, and returning members can sign up for up to 2 sessions. During each session, crews of 5-7 corps members will rotate work on Parks, Trails, and Farm. MYCC is a great program for youth who want to do physically-satisfying, community-based, paid conservation work. Reach out to Leila Faulstich-Hon at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Session 1: June 26 - July 14
Session 2: July 17 - August 4
