Do you want to be a part of something that makes a difference in your own community? Youth Corps Community crews will learn how to build trails, enhance natural habitats, remove invasive species, and develop many other valuable skills while connecting young people to their local and regional community.
The Tacoma Sound to Summit crews will each be comprised of 8 youth (15-19) and 2 adult leaders. They will work for five weeks with the city of Tacoma as a youth community crew completing a variety of local conservation projects. Youth will meet each morning at the crew vehicle which is centrally located in town, complete somewhere around 6-6.5 hours of work, have one hour of education, and then return to the meeting location. During the fifth week we plan on taking a long day trip to Mount Rainier National Park to learn more about natural resources and the outdoors.
