United States Youth Conservation Corps logo

Last year our Youth Bureau trained and employed more than 250 individuals ages 14 to
20 years of age who earned over 35,000 hours of priceless career experience.
Our pre-employment training, T.E.E.N. Works (Teen Employment Education Network),
is an interactive workforce training experience that helps participants develop and
practice essential workplace competencies such as communication and interpersonal
skills, critical thinking capabilities, conflict resolution, and workplace ethics. Upon
successful completion of the program, young people may be placed with one of our job
sites.
Our Teen Employment Education Network celebrated 30 youth graduates last year in
their 4-week pre-employment summer training program.
T.E.E.N Works will be held at Rockland Community College from July 10 to August 3.
For more information please call (845) 364-2929.
For Employers interested in becoming a Job Site, please call Olivia Heller, YEP
Coordinator at (845) 364-2933.
Let’s not forget, our Rockland Conservation and Service Corps (RCSC). The RCSC
facilitates a full-time, outdoor-based, conservation-oriented service program for young
adults, ages 18-25 who are interested in environmental issues. Corps members spend
350-hours improving the community’s parks, open spaces, and water bodies, while
receiving a $2,400 living stipend and an $1,342.86 Education Award.
Program starts the end of May and concludes the middle of August. Through this
program, Corps Members have the unique opportunity to learn in depth conservation
skills side-by-side with working professionals.
Last year our corps members contributed over 8,000 hours to environmental and
conservation service. If you know someone is interested call 845-364-2932 or send us
