Ashland Parks & Recreation is offering an opportunity for the youth of the Rogue Valley to participate in restoration and riparian work in Ashland parks and trails during our summer Youth Conservation Corps (YCC).
Incoming 8th through 12th graders will spend a week in June or July performing a variety of parks and trails maintenance tasks including invasive species removal, trail chipping, hand watering newly planted native species and shoring up well-used hiking trails.
Earn Academic Community Service Hours
After successfully completing the program, participants will earn 25 hours of academic community service per session plus recreation passes to the Daniel Meyer Pool and the Ashland Rotary Centennial Ice Rink.
The 9th Annual YCC offers three sessions of fourteen youth each:
DATES Session 1: June 8–11
Session 2: June 22–25
Session 3: July 6–9
To apply you must submit both an application and youth waiver for each participant.
