The Prescott National Forest relies on the hard work and cooperation of many partners in accomplishing its mission of caring for the land and serving people. Support and insight provided by partners is critical to the sustainability of landscapes and the services and opportunities found on the forest.

Collaboration and communication with partners helps the forest maintain relevancy with the people and communities served, and ideally leads to successful managment of public lands now and into the future.


Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) Program

The Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) is a summer employment program for U.S. citizens and permanent residents ages 15-18 from all segments of society, who work, learn, and earn together by doing projects on public land. Youth are provided an opportunity to increase their self-esteem and learn self-discipline. They learn work ethic and build lasting cultural bridges with other youth. There are several YCC opportunities with the Forest Service in many locations across the nation. For a list of current work opportunities, please visit the national Forest Service website.
