​​Oregon Youth Conservation Corps (OYCC)​​

Mission Statement

The Oregon Youth Conservation Corps (OYCC) creates meaningful opportunities for youth through significant resource projects that enhance the Oregon Community.

Oregon Youth Conservation Corps (OYCC) provides grant funding, training and resources to youth serving agencies across Oregon.

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 work youth crews to complete projects throughout Oregon.

All OYCC 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.

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

NOTE: OYCC does not directly hire Corpsmembers, so please contact the local program in your area if looking for youth employment.
