The Weld County Youth Conservation Corps (WCYCC) engages its corps members in meaningful community and conservation (land, water, energy) service projects throughout Weld County. From 8-week summer crews to year-round crews, WCYCC serves youth and young adults ages 16-25.


AmeriCorps (Ages 16*-25)

Sponsored by the Corporation for National and Community Service, AmeriCorps is a commitment-based program where corps members receive a monthly living stipend and then receive an Education Award (scholarship) upon successful completion of their service. Corps members can serve with WCYCC in the following hour capacities: 300, 450, 900, or 1200 hours. From voluntary community service projects to grant funded projects, AmeriCorps members are engaged in a wide variety of impactful service opportunities throughout Weld County.
*Youth age 16 require a GED or High School Diploma. 


TIGHT (Ages 14-17)

WCYCC’s Teamwork Innovation Growth Hope and Training (TIGHT) crew operates in partnership with the Weld County Department of Human Services Child Welfare division. All crew members are referred to TIGHT through a Child Welfare Case Worker and are enrolled in either the year-round crew (not attending school) or Summer TIGHT (in-school youth). TIGHT works alongside Child Welfare, 19th District Juvenile Probation, North Range Behavioral Health, and other supports to ensure that crew members are engaged in a positive and structured environment where they can work on educational achievements, life skills, and healthy engagement in their communities.
