Northwest Youth Corps - Supporting Young People for 35 Years
This year, with the help of community gifts, we connected hundreds and hundreds of young people and young adults to paid conservation projects, while helping to restore our public lands and waters across Oregon, Washington, and Idaho.
For most youth, it was their first summer job. Through their hard work, these young people gained skills, and earned money and high school credit or a scholarship. Said one participant,
“Most kids don’t get an opportunity like this…Most kids spend their summer hanging out and playing video games.”
As we approach our 35th birthday in 2019, please help us meet some ambitious goals. We need to outfit additional youth crews with tools and equipment, expand our team to deliver industry-leading programs, and invest in technology to provide better project tracking and communication during emergencies.
If you have a particular interest (i.e. scholarships, Idaho Conservation Corps, etc.), please note it on your donation, and we will dedicate it to that project. Together, we can help an ever more diverse group of youth and young adults to learn, grow, and experience success. Together, we can have an impact on forever.
