Northwest Youth Corps (NYC) encourages youth and young adults to learn, grow, and experience success through education, leadership, community, empowerment, and challenge.  NYC programs include intensive residential conservation corps crew, local non-residential community corps crew, youth day camps, a fully accredited Outdoor Middle and High School, and a two-acre organic farm.  NYC also partners with the Willamette National Forest to provide opportunities to communities that are underrepresented in the outdoor industry. 

Based out of Eugene, Oregon, NYC crews complete important conservation projects throughout Washington, Oregon, Idaho, California, and Arizona.  Within all of our programs NYC's goal is to empower and assist youth to gain the skills and confidence they need to face life-challenges.  We believe diversity is a key source of strength for our programs, and we strive to create a safe, welcoming, and supportive community for participants from a wide range of backgrounds and abilities.  NYC's programs emphasize teamwork and leadership while promoting education, personal growth, and individual achievement.

During the summer youth corps programs, Northwest Youth Corps offers two Deaf and Hard of Hearing Crews.  Within these crews, staff will be fluent in American Sign Language and foster an enviroment that encourages leadership devlopment as well as cultural exchange among the youth and leaders in the program.
