OYC Mission Statement
The Oregon Youth Corps (OYC) creates meaningful opportunities for youth through significant resource projects that enhance the Oregon Community. In addition to the web resources, here, see more information on the OYC website at: https://www.oyccweb.com/
Oregon Youth Corps (OYC) provides grant funding, 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: OYC does not directly hire Corps members, so please contact the local program in your area if looking for youth employment.
