Youth Conservation Corps
The Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge supports the Youth Conservation Corps program (YCC). The YCC is a summer employment program for young men and women ages 15 through 18, who work, learn, and earn together by doing projects on public lands. The program is administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and U. S. Department of Interior’s Fish and Wildlife Service and National Park Service.

The purpose of the YCC program is to:
1. Accomplish needed conservation work on public lands.
2. Provide gainful employment for 15 through 18 year old males and females from all social, economic, ethnic, and racial classifications.
3. Develop an understanding and appreciation of the Nation's natural environment and heritage in young adults.

Projects may include trail maintenance, improving wildlife habitat, boundary sign posting, invasive plant control, bird banding, trail construction, office work and general maintenance activities. In addition, the program includes opportunities to learn about the environment through hands-on participation in biological program activities, fieldtrips, and by working alongside refuge staff.
Please contact the refuge if you are interested in participating in the YCC program.

The Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge uses interns throughout the year to accomplish specific projects. Internships can vary in length and require different skill sets, depending on the project that is being done.
