CONSERVATION YOUTH CORPS
Proceeds from the event will support a thriving environment that protects, connects, and sustains us through Credit Valley Conservation Foundation’s current priority fundraising projects such as the Conservation Youth Corps (CYC) Program.
CYC is a program of Credit Valley Conservation and provides local high school students with opportunities to engage in conservation and natural resource management projects in a safe, structured, and science based environment. Through CYC, we are cultivating the Green Leaders of tomorrow and with each tree planted, the CYC is helping to ensure that we have a river to swim in, paddle on, fish in and drink from.
There are 3 components to the CYC program:
The CYC Summer Program provides opportunities for students to earn volunteer hours while participating in week-long work terms in conservation.
The Branch Out! program enhances secondary science and geography curriculum and raises awareness about local climate change issues. Students are inspired to discover nature in their community and participate in a local stewardship project.
Frontline is an opportunity for high school students to stay involved in environmental activities throughout the school year. This leadership program provides training, workshops, and job-shadowing opportunities for youth.
