Northwest Youth Corps is currently recruiting for many paid fall positions. Whether you are between schools, taking a gap year, or looking to gain more experience for your future career, Northwest Youth Corps has a spot for you.

Northwest Youth Corps offers fall programs for both youth (ages 16-19) and young adults (ages 19+).
