Northwest Youth Corps

HOURS / WEEK:    40+
DAYS OF WEEK:    7
SALARY RANGE:  
 $76-99 / day DOE

POSITION DESCRIPTION AND QUALIFICATIONS
Staff and participants of NYC's Youth Corps programs live and work outdoors in some of the most beautiful and rugged natural areas in the Pacific Northwest. Youth Corps crews work throughout Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Northern California. As a Crew Leader, you will co-lead a teen-age trail crew in one of our many conservation projects. You will grow, learn and laugh along with your crew; build solid muscles and lasting friendships.

They have the drive, commitment, and mental toughness to carry them through the unexpected challenges that arise at the most inopportune of times; a remote location with bad weather, in the middle of trying to complete a mile of new trail, finish a bridge, or eradicate an invasive species. The position is multi-faceted and demanding, but with opportunity for enormous rewards. Successful Field Staff demonstrate high standards, good sense, excellent judgment, and the desire to devote themselves to the crew and program alike. The Field Staff positions require physical aptitude, mental fortitude, and a high level of comfort in the outdoors.

Required Qualifications:
• At Least 21 years old
• Leadership experience with youth or young adults
• Clean driving record for the past two years (Driver’s License Background Check required)
• Experience in the outdoors, familiarity with minimum impact camping techniques
