Are you an enthusiastic leader who loves the outdoors and working with high schoolers? Then you've come to the right place! As a leader of a MCC Youth Conservation Crew (YCC), you will guide local Montana youth in conservation service-based outdoor projects on our public lands. You'll have the chance to positively impact the lives of students, local communities, and some of the most treasured wild lands in the West.

The Youth Conservation Corps Leader will lead crews with a co-leader for rotating projects, working intensively in one community to fully explore a variety of hands-on natural resource projects.  YCC crews are based in remote, rural communities around Montana, with crew sizes of 4-6 participants. The youth participants typically go home every evening.
