Since 1984, NYC and its resource management partners have provided opportunities to over 19,000 youth and young adults to learn, grow, and experience success.

Our program integrates team-based work projects, education, and on-site vocational training into an experience that prioritizes personal development and conservation work skills. The position is challenging. Participants work on physically demanding conservation projects in all kinds of weather. Our program is a highly structured immersive experience, in an environment that does not allow for much independent time away from the crew, time in civilization, or access to electrical power. We focus intentionally on the concept of community within our crews, which means we focus on being present with one another and do not use cell phones until after 8PM each evening (we intentionally unplug). Participants engage in many group activities each day to help the crew function, including meal prep, water treatment, and tool maintenance, followed by a family-style dinner and formal educational sessions. Crew Member, Young Adult Programs Participants are actively mentored and empowered by their leader and expected to take on increasing leadership roles within the crew, including acting as a leader of the day/week by the end of the program.

Participants will work on high priority conservation projects for land management partners like the Forest Service, BLM, and Bureau of Reclamation. Some crews may be focused on the construction of bridges and kiosks, while others focus on the restoration of at-risk landscapes and watersheds. Other projects may include fuels reduction or GIS mapping and surveys. Each crew will have a project specialty and will receive training and certification appropriate to that theme. Development & Education: - Crew Members participate in informal and formal educational discussions. An Individual Development Plan will be created by each member to foster self-improvement and reflection throughout the program. Participants will have the opportunity to earn industry-recognized credentials.
