YCC's Annual Summer Campaign

Help support YCC’s Summer Youth Conservation Program in Lake County!

The Summer Youth Conservation Program supports youth development careers and environmental stewardship.

Our Roots

‘Youth Conservation Corps’ summer conservation program started 50 years ago, in 1974. For half a century 50 years YCC’s summer program participants have safeguarded the future of Lake County’s green spaces and helped increase access for all. We are proud of these roots, and all the branches and leaves that have grown from them, both in our open spaces, and in our youth participants.

Every summer, crews of local young people improve our open spaces AND earn stipends and college scholarships while working in the Lake County Forest Preserves.

Give today to DOUBLE your IMPACT. Support local youth from Roots to Branches this summer!
