Serving Northern Youth and Communities for 20 Years!

1999crewOriginally founded in 1995 as the Northeast Kingdom Conservation Service Corps (NEKCSC or ‘Kingdom Corps’), the NorthWoods Conservation Corps has served the youth and communities of northern Vermont, New Hampshire and beyond for two decades. In this time, the Corps has worked with over 1000 local young people and completed nearly 250,000 hours of conservation and community service work throughout the region.

Whether you were on the local crews here at NorthWoods, down in the Lyndon/Burke area, deep in th woods with the Backcountry Crew, or on one of our YCC crews working with the US Fish and Wildlife Service, Corps alumni have a special bond that speaks to a common experience. These experiences: working on the trail, planting trees in the rain, camping out, or finishing a job well done are as unique as the crews that made them. They also speak to the quality experience that every crew member and leader enjoys in the NorthWoods Conservation Corps program.

We want to hear from you! The Corps alumni program is designed to engage past crew members and leaders, provide updates on current initiatives, and create a professional support network for our alumni. Most importantly, we look forward to catching up and learning more about your personal path in life and how the Corps may have shaped your decision-making.
