Urgent Services ProvidedWCYCC, Weld County Conservation Corps:
Sponsored by the Corporation for National and Community Service, AmeriCorps is a commitment-based program where corps members receive a monthly living stipend and then receive an Education Award (scholarship) upon successful completion of their service. Corps members can serve with WCYCC in the following hour capacities: 300, 450, 900, or 1700 hours. From voluntary community service projects to contracted chainsaw projects, AmeriCorps members are engaged in a wide variety of impactful service opportunities.
Different seasons determine what AmeriCorps commitments WCYCC is hiring for. Check back later to see when our next hiring period will begin.

All corps members are referred to TIGHT through case managers and are enrolled in the program for just a summer, or up to six-months. TIGHT works closely with Child Welfare, Weld County Probation, North Range Behavioral Health, and the 19th Judicial District to ensure that corps members are engaged in a positive and structured environment where they can work on educational achievements and healthy engagement in their communities.
