The YCC program, held at hundreds of refuges throughout the nation, is designed for young men and women to have the opportunity to do valuable refuge work while learning about wildlife and conservation of natural resources. The enrollees are involved in trail clearing, painting and putting up signs, mowing and maintaining public use areas, cleaning refuge facilities, repairing and maintaining equipment, assisting with biological activities as well as other duties. In addition, youth will learn how to become a team player, learn the responsibilities of employment, learn how a wildlife refuge is operated and learn about wildlife and wild lands.
