Mission

VYCC is a 501c3 non-profit conservation and education organization with the mission of teaching young people personal responsibility through meaningful work that connects us to the land, community, and one another. VYCC programs operate year-round, throughout Vermont and beyond. We believe that every person, regardless of background, has the ability to work hard, make meaningful contributions to a group, and take responsibility for themselves. We believe youth need opportunities to connect with and appreciate the natural world. We believe that conservation and agricultural work are ideal platforms to teach leadership, interpersonal, and professional skills.

VYCC

The VYCC is a statewide, year-round, non-profit conservation and education organization, founded in 1985, with the mission of teaching individuals to take personal responsibility for their actions. The VYCC has an established track-record in developing and implementing work-based learning projects for over 20 years in a variety of settings, including Parks, Wilderness, Roving and Community Crews that work during the summer months and employ almost 300 youth to perform high-priority conservation work throughout Vermont. In 2006, the organization?s move to the Leadership, Education and Training Center at the West Monitor Barn provided the opportunity to expand to offer year-round programming.
