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.
