Food and Farm Project Lead
The mission of the VYCC is to teach young people personal responsibility through meaningful work that connects us to the land, community, and one another. To instill these skills and values, VYCC enrolls young people in paid work opportunities. Our model is strong and simple: Youth Corps Members work together in small groups, guided by highly trained leaders, to complete high priority projects in conservation and agriculture. Headquartered on historic Vermont farmland, we apply this crew model to our Food and Farm program by employing youth, guided by leaders, in important hunger relief and sustainable agriculture projects. As such The Farm at VYCC engages its Youth Corps Members, leaders and community in the Health Care Share, a community-based public health project that connects Vermont families who are unable to afford or access fresh, nutritious food with a weekly share of locally grown produce.
