Coastal Conservation Youth Corps
Are you in Grade 9,10,11, or 12 looking to earn your 40 volunteer hours gaining valuable experience in coastal conservation on Lake Huron? The Lake Huron Centre for Coastal Conservation is launching the Coastal Conservation Youth Corps in 2020! A one-week immersive experience getting diverse experience in the environment field doing dune restoration, invasive species removal, shoreline surveys, plant identification, beach clean-ups, learning about species at risk and coastal processes.
Applications will be opening soon for Summer/ Autumn 2020.
The Coastal Conservation Youth Corps (CCYC) program engages local youth in Great Lakes science projects, building hands-on skills that complement the school curriculum, inspiring involvement in the local community while completing their high school diploma, encouraging continuing education.
Through this program you will learn about conservation, develop skills to further your career in the environmental field, along with leadership skills transferable to any profession through introspective activities, physical challenges and team building.
CCYC community projects protect water quality, provide habitat for unique species, remove harmful trash from shorelines, and reduce the spread of invasive species. We are experiencing more interest now than ever in volunteerism. Training young leaders to care for and take conservation action to protect and restore coastal ecosystems will ensure our coast is resilient for generations to come.
The Program at-a-glance outlines the CCYC program's agenda, including the skills you will gain each day and the themes covered.
