NSYCC Opportunities for Youth

The future starts with youth


The Nova Scotia Youth Conservation Corps provides youth with environmental work experience, an enhanced appreciation of the environment and their community, and develops skills for life-long learning (including team-building and leadership skills, increased knowledge for future employment and/or education ventures, and the ability to give back to their community and their environment). This program is a partnership between the NSYCC, Nova Scotia communities, and youth.

We endeavor to make our school webpage to reflect the needs of our users by making it mobile-friendly and to provide information and functionality that our school community could best use.   Keep using the site and check regularly for updates!  If you find something that you believe could be better configured or an idea you would like to share please use this form to send us your suggestions.  Thank you.
