Impactful Projects

YCC's dedication is reflected in the wide array of projects we undertake. From wildfire risk reduction and habitat enhancement to stream and wetland restoration, our work spans vital aspects of environmental stewardship. YCC East Kootenay Crew also takes pride in fostering local food security and community engagement through initiatives like Fix it Fair. By engaging in data collection, ecological restoration, and public outreach, we aim to make a significant positive impact on our environment and community. We're excited about the journey ahead and the opportunities to effect change in the East Kootenay Region.

Within Youth Climate Corps, crew members are between 17-29 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.
