OYC Community Stewardship Corps

The Community Stewardship Corps (CSC) is a community-focused alternative education program. Oregon Youth Corps partners with TEC to provide this program in Harney County. Youth gain valuable education, employment and leadership skills while learning work ethic and environmental knowledge through integrated classroom and field-based learning projects.

Crew activities include natural resource projects such as: trail construction and maintenance, invasive species and noxious weed removal, riparian and wetlands restoration, construction and cultivation of native plant stock. Students also participate in projects such as GIS and GPS mapping and surveying, water/soil sampling and monitoring.
