Northwest Youth Corps offers a variety of summer outdoor leadership and service opportunities for youth ages 13-18. A special crew for deaf and hard of hearing youth is supervised by ASL trained crew leaders.
All programs require a $50-250 registration fee but most programs pay for themselves with a stipend paid to the student.
For example, a 15 year old participating in the sleep-away 5 week conservation corps project pays a $250 registration fee but will earn approx $1000.
There are a variety of options, check out their website to see the different programs. All of the focus on youth development through leadership, environmental education and conservation work.
