OYC creates meaningful opportunities for youth through significant resource projects that enhance the Oregon Community.

The Oregon Youth Corps (OYC) was created by the 1987 Oregon Legislature to emulate the Civilian Conservation Corps of the 1930’s. OYC builds on the strong connections between positive work experiences, work skills, personal responsibility, commitment to education, and future employment for Oregon’s youth. The purpose of the Oregon Youth Corps (OYC) as stated in ORS 418.650 to 418.663 is:
  • To establish a disadvantaged and at-risk youth work program in order to perform conservation work of public value in the most cost effective manner
  • To utilize such a program as a means of needed assistance to protect, conserve, rehabilitate and improve the natural, historical and cultural resources of the state
  • To utilize such a program to increase education, training and employment opportunities for disadvantaged and at-risk youth for the purpose of improving work skills, instilling the work ethic and increasing employability
