Community Service Award: Northwest Youth Corps
This award honors a trail organization that performs exceptional community service relating to but beyond trail work.
Since 1984, Northwest Youth Corps has been building trails to the future for more than 18,000 diverse young people through opportunities to improve the natural environment. Engaged in more than just trail work, youth and young adults become citizen stewards through NYC’s mix of academic, workplace, and life skill education. During the award period, Northwest Youth Corps crews supported recreational infrastructure through almost 200,000 project hours, including the construction of 30 miles of new trail and maintenance of 669 miles of existing trail.
Established in 1984, Northwest Youth Corps is a non-profit organization whose core purpose is to provide opportunities for youth and young adults to learn, grow, and experience success. NYC is the region’s largest and oldest outdoor conservation and youth education program, and serves youth from all backgrounds.
