Oregon Youth Corps (OYC) provides grant fundin​g, training and resources to youth serving agencies across Oregon.

The Summer Conservation Corps (SCC) is OYC’s largest state funded program, with the goal of having a local program in each of Oregon’s 36 counties. OYC also provides funding for work youth crews to complete projects throughout Oregon.

All OYC programs incorporate the following four major components: education, workforce development, and training, enhancing the environment through stewardship, and working as part of a team in a crew setting.

OYC receives funding from the Oregon Lottery’s Amusement Device Tax, the Oregon State Marine Board, and the Bureau of Land Management. OYC also partners with the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department and SOLVE for the Youth River Stewards Program.

NOTE: OY​C does not directly hire Corps ​members, so please contact the local program in your area if looking for youth employment.
