Workforce Programs for Youth
The Oregon Youth
Conservation Corps (OYCC) provides grant
funding, training and resources to youth-serving agencies across the state to
create training and employment opportunities for Oregon youth.
The Summer Conservation Corps (SCC) is OYCC’s
largest state funded program, with the goal of having a local program in each
of Oregon’s 36 counties. OYCC also provides funding for youth work crews to
complete projects throughout the state.
The Oregon WIOA Youth Programs provides workforce development training opportunities to young people
ages 14-24 through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). Through
WIOA, youth can gain valuable work skills through a variety of job
opportunities such as job shadows, internships, and summer jobs.
