Canyon Country Youth Corps

Our Canyon Country Youth Corps (CCYC) program hires young adults ages 15-25 for five to twenty-five weeks to complete service projects on public lands in the Four Corners area, in partnership with land management agencies. CCYC Crew Members work on the health and accessibility of these lands through projects such as: building and maintaining trails, fuel mitigation, fence construction and maintenance, invasive species removal, and habitat restoration.

  • The CCYC experience improves work readiness, employment prospects, and economic independence for youth.
  • The CCYC experience fosters a healthy lifestyle: respect for self, others, natural resources, and the outdoors.
  • The CCYC experience pays a wages, provides AmeriCorps education awards to youth who work 300 hours or more, allows youth to work towards completion of their GED, and improves job and life skills.
