Funding

Youth Conservation Corps is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. The majority of our funding is from government grants through the U.S. Department of Labor. As public funding sources become less predictable and are continually reduced, we are working to expand our financial resources through private grants, individual donors and sponsorships.
