Select students from Benzie Central and Benzie Academy are invited to participate in the SEEDS Youth Conservation Corps. Youth Corps members commit to 8 weeks of work, receive wages, and contribute hundreds of hours to local conservation and community service projects.
Youth Conservation Corps empowers youth through service learning projects and development of green collar job skills. This team-based training program is modeled after the Civilian Conservation Corps of the 1930s New Deal.
Students become better students through learning real world green collar* skills like land management, organic agriculture, de-construction & construction, biological identification, and more.

*Green collar industries bring economic value to a community while also adding value to the natural resources and the social fabric of a community. Green collar jobs are 21st Century jobs. We prepare youth for quality jobs that will be available to them in the 21st Century. They know this and so they work hard at learning.
