Are you a local youth age 15-18 (entering grades 10+)? Are you interested in conservation work and helping your community?
Members of the Montpelier Youth Conservation Corps (MYCC) have the opportunity to work hard and have fun as part of a small conservation focused team. This summer, MYCC will be working to protect our natural surroundings while enhancing recreational opportunities in Montpelier. Before filling out the application, please read over this position description to ensure that this is something you would enjoy. Applications are due by Friday, March 25 at 5pm.
This is a paid 30 hours/week position which runs Tuesday-Friday from 8:30am -4:30pm. The program is available to High School students in Central VT. MYCC members may work on a number of projects centered on creating a more connected, sustainable Montpelier. Whether building bridges in Hubbard Park, harvesting crops at the FEAST Farm, or removing invasive species along the bike path, every project is meaningful community-based.
This summer we'll have 3 3-week long sessions. New members can sign up for 1 session, and returning members can sign up for up to 2 sessions. Please see the position description for information on dates and pay.
