Bilingual Youth Corps

Bilingual Crew Members complete demanding and rewarding trail, restoration, and fence projects in partnership with public land management agencies. The program officially operates from 8am to 5pm Monday through Friday. Each program day involves seven hours of service-learning and one hour of formal education, plus a break for lunch. Recreational activities include canoeing, hiking, and visits to museums or historic sites.

Each summer has two 5-week sessions. The first week of each session will be training. The training will include educational programs on habitat restoration and conservation, outdoor skills, and leadership development. Upon completion of training, youth will work in crews of six, each facilitated by a Bilingual Youth Crew Leader and Assistant Leader. Youth will spend 4 weeks working at various project sites. A graduation BBQ will be held on the last day.

Prior to leading crews, BYC Crew Leaders undergo a three week training period including time in the field working alongside fellow Crew Leaders and Field Bosses.
