Northwest Youth Corps

Established in 1984, Northwest Youth Corps (NYC) engages youth and young adults to improve our region’s public and private lands. Through NYC’s programs, participants develop critical thinking, judgment, teamwork and leadership skills in an outdoor setting. Just as important, NYC helps young people gain a better understanding of modern resource management and related careers. Participants earn a paycheck or stipend, high school credit, and a solid job reference needed to become citizen stewards and the future workforce.
