Idaho Conservation Corps - Information & Recruiting Session
April 8 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm MDT
Please join us for a virtual information session about Idaho Conservation Corps. The ICC has served youth and young adults throughout the Pacific Northwest and Idaho by providing a paid, challenging, job training, life skill, and education program, where they live, learn, work, and recreate together. This a great way to add field experience to your resume and spend the summer in the Idaho wilderness!
ICC offers a variety of different programs, including both Youth (ages 16-19) and Young Adult (ages 19+) programs. ICC crews complete a variety of physically challenging conservation projects including invasive species removal, habitat restoration, and recreational trail construction and maintenance. Recent examples include building mountain bike trails in the Payette National Forest, assisting in creating ADA accessible trails at Craters of the Moon, maintaining campsites in the Sawtooths, invasive species removal at the Clark Fork Delta in North Idaho, and fence construction at City of Rocks. Projects provide hands on job training with an emphasis on personal responsibility, work ethic and teamwork. Additionally, participants receive firsthand experience in careers in resource management and outdoor leadership. Corps Members also participate in daily educational activities designed to improve interpersonal communication, outdoor living, career development, conflict resolution and natural science education. All participants are financially compensated for the work that they complete during the time that they are a part of the program.
