Larimer County Conservation Corps

Position title : Program Coordinator

Deadline to apply : 11/17/19

Type of Position : Staff (Full-Time)

Town, City, Park, etc : Fort Collins

State / Territory : Colorado

Organization/Program Description :

The Larimer County Conservation Corps (LCCC) promotes individual development through service for the benefit of our environment and community. LCCC is housed within and administered by the Larimer County Economic and Workforce Development.

In 1986 the Larimer County Economic and Workforce Development created a summer youth employment program called Operation Brightside with support from the local Anheuser-Busch brewery. Within this program youth participants made repairs and home improvements for elderly and disabled residents of Larimer County, Colorado.

In 1993, Operation Brightside was re-conceived as the Larimer County Conservation Corps (LCCC) to address two key issues: the persistent challenges youth and young adults face in securing employment and gaining work experience; and to maintain local parks, open spaces, and natural lands for the enjoyment of the community.

Through conservation projects and environmental education, we empower our corps members to become environmental stewards, while developing self-sufficiency and work preparation skills to help them become productive members of our community. The LCCC is an accredited corps through the Colorado Youth Corps Association and is based in Fort Collins, Colorado.

To date, the LCCC operates seasonal programs focusing on a variety of conservation projects such as trail building/maintenance, habitat restoration, fire mitigation, invasive species removal, and home efficiency.

Each of our programs is unique within the corps, but each one reflects our core values of environmental conservation and individual development. The majority of work done by LCCC crews is supported through fee-for-service contract dollars and grant funding.
