Here is a report of recent work projects. More details are available on this YESC Facebook site. YESC is also a national movement. To see how our projects contribute to global service learning, see this national website.
YESC Mission: To empower young people to be effective, responsible, global citizens by providing opportunities for environmental education and action, leadership development, and cross-cultural awareness.
YESC Philosophy: Learn by DOING. YES Corps provides a unique opportunity for youth to identify local environmental issues while working collaboratively to engage participants in community action. We combine volunteer service, environmental education and work experience in a program that focuses on trail improvement, landscaping, watershed restoration, fire ecology, organic gardening, group work, mentoring, and creative projects. Our supervised summer program includes CPR and First Aid certification, training and safety seminars, and educational and enrichment workshops. Joining YES Corps will expose participants to the world of science, social justice and environmental studies through opportunities for environmental education and action, leadership development, and cross-cultural awareness.
