Wildsight Youth Climate Corps launched a pilot program in 2023 in Golden. It was an incredible season, with work done in wildfire risk reductionfood security, invasive species, public engagement, and many learning opportunities for the crew along the way. 

Possible future seasons are TBD. Sign up for Wildsight’s newsletter to stay updated with Youth Climate Corps news.

Impactful Projects

Golden YCC has been engaging in a wide range of projects that contribute to the well-being of our community and environment. Here is the short list of the projects we worked on in Golden: Climate Change Education, Local Food Systems, Assisting the Golden Food Bank, Creeky Cedars Native Plant Nursery, Biodiverse Homestead, Building Raised Garden Beds, Wildfire Risk Reduction, Collaboration with "No-Waste" Farmers, Wetland Exploration, Learning from Sierra Club BC & Environmental Education.

At Wildsight YCC Golden, our vision is to create a community that thrives in harmony with nature. We are dedicated to addressing climate challenges, promoting sustainable practices, and fostering a resilient future for generations to come.

Within Youth Climate Corps, crew members are between 17-30 years old; they earn wages, gain work experience, build networks, and develop themselves personally and professionally. Meanwhile, they complete projects that both benefit their own communities and support global efforts to act on the climate crisis.

If you or your organization wants to learn more about how to team up with us and move forward on projects in your community, or if you are interested in funding one of our projects related to our different focus areas, we are here to support you.
