Applications now accepted for YCC

The Flathead National Forest is accepting applications for our 2023 Flathead Youth Conservation Corps. (YCC) program – a conservation and education work-based program for youth between the ages of 15 and 18

YCC is a program designed to accomplish needed conservation work on public lands, provide gainful employment for students from all segments of society while gaining an appreciation of natural resources and cultural heritage. It also provides our youth an opportunity to engage in a variety of jobs the Forest Service does and learn about career opportunities within the agency.

"We are excited to host this great program that provides jobs for our youth in the valley while they explore their national forest and the potential careers we have to offer," said Kurt Steele, Flathead National Forest Supervisor. "We have provided this opportunity in years past and it is always a highlight to hear about their adventures at the end of the season, and their work has also provided a great service to our public."

Applicants will be selected to spend nine weeks of their summer based out of the Flathead National Forest, Tally Lake Ranger District / Supervisors Office located in Kalispell, MT. The deadline to submit applications is April 3, 2023.  Please email your completed documents to and you can also mail your completed application, essay and resume to Flathead National Forest, Tally Lake Ranger District, ATTN: YCC Program Coordinator, 650 Wolfpack Way, Kalispell, MT 59901.
