Conservation Youth Corps (CYC) is a program of Credit Valley Conservation that exists for the purpose of providing valuable, interesting, learning and volunteer opportunities in environmental stewardship and conservation for youth in our watershed.
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.
