Environmental Youth Corps
Registration is now closed for the 2023 program. Check back in March 2024 for next year’s registration!
The Environmental Youth Corps is a fun way for high school students to earn volunteer hours towards their OSSD while gaining hands-on experience in the environmental field. EYC members gain skills and experience that will be a great addition to their resume. If you enjoy being outdoors or have interest in environmental studies, you will benefit from this opportunity.
