YCC is a National Award Winning Program
What would you pay to join a program like this? $50? $100? $200???
Guess again! We pay you! You heard that right, WE PAY YOU! For three weeks of your time volunteering at a Virginia State Park, you’ll earn a $500 stipend at the end of the program. While you’re with us, we’ll take care of all your dining and housing accommodations while you enjoy the scenic vistas of Virginia.
Why have you not heard of us?
We’re the nation’s best kept secret. Yes, the WHOLE nation! In 2010, the Virginia State Parks Youth Conservation Corps won the “Take Pride in America” award for the BEST state volunteer program in the nation. For those of you unfamiliar of “Take Pride in America”, the program was instituted by Congress and is administered by the Department of Interior under Secretary Salazar. Their purpose is to distinguish individuals and volunteer groups that hold fast to their objective of stewardship of our nation’s public lands.
Sound too good to be true?
Hardly. 2012 marks the 10th anniversary of the Virginia State Parks Youth Conservation Corps. Thousands of volunteers have passed through our doors and left happier and with a fulfilled sense of purpose, drive and dedication. And YOU could be one of them!
