Idaho Conservation Corps

About Idaho Conservation Corps

Idaho Conservation Corps is an innovative non-profit organization dedicated to providing opportunities for youth and young adults to learn, grow, and experience success. We operate outdoor programs that help youth develop critical life skills focusing on education, challenge, leadership, community, and empowerment. ICC programs include intensive 5-week residential camping conservation crews, and AmeriCorps positions for young adults at least 19 years old. Leaders help youth in our programs gain essential job skills like solid work ethic, teamwork, perseverance, and academic credit, all while learning how to become experiential leaders themselves. Leaders and young adults complete ICC having worked closely with public land management agency partners, earned a paycheck, and become better prepared to meet their life’s goals. ICC crews work in communities across Idaho as well as many of the Gem State’s public lands on resource management projects like trail maintenance, non-native weed eradication, and stream restoration. These projects benefit our public lands while helping to develop the next generation of citizen stewards. Idaho Conservation Corps is open to all youth and young adults looking to make a difference.

“I loved the crew I was on and the impact we made by clearing out a trail. Living there for so long brought me a great appreciation for what I have in my life.”
