Farmington Youth Conservation Corps (YCC)

Farmington Youth Conservation Corps (YCC)
The Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) was created in 1992 to provide a process to employ the youth in public projects as an off branch of the Civilian Conservation Corps started by President Franklin D Roosevelt amongst other New Deal Plans to help decrease the unemployment in the United States. Participants of the YCC learn employment skills, work ethics, as well as self-discipline and self-esteem.

Promote the education, success and well-being of the youth of New Mexico through the conservation and enhancement of the state's natural resources and lasting community benefits.

A New Mexico where Youth Conservation Corps members contribute to the quality of life of all New Mexicans.

Together we strive for…
  • Healthy natural resources and lasting community benefits
  • Instilling values of hard work and accomplishments
  • Promotion of education and training
We strive to be...
  • Responsible stewards of the state's resources
  • Positive role models for New Mexico's youth

12-1-16 It breaks my heart to have to post this but as of December 1st we have lost the YCC Grant. I was told that there was an error in the NM State budget and there was not enough money for the NM YCC program and several programs had to be cut. This means that there will not be a YCC program this summer here in Farmington. We will be applying for the grant next year to see if we can get the program back for the summer of 2018. Thank you for your interest in our program and please stay tuned for any news.
