About Youth Conservation Corps

Youth Conservation Corps is a non-profit organization committed to providing Lake County’s young people with education, certification programs and career development to build skills for life.

In the majority of our programs, YCC serves youth 16-24 years old who have dropped out of high school and face other challenges, such as being low income, homeless, single parents, persons with disabilities, basic skills deficient and/or foster youth. Our young people are from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds and live within Waukegan, North Chicago, Zion, and other pockets of poverty within Lake County.

Through our hands-on job skills training, GED courses and other career readiness work, we empower these young people to get back on track, gain self-worth and develop lifelong skills to achieve their goals.
