The Phoenix Youth Corps


Phoenix Youth Corps, a program of Oregon Youth Conservation Corps (OYCC) seeks to connect at-risk youth with their local community, through a variety of service-learning projects, paid, and intern work experiences throughout Douglas County. Our students work with a range of partners in the community including but not limited to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), US Forest Service, the City of Roseburg, and the Cow Creek Band of the Umpqua Tribe of Indians.


Modeled after the Civilian Conservation Corps of the 1930’s, Phoenix Youth Corps is an avenue for students to explore the outdoors, build workplace skill sets, and enjoy success with a team. Phoenix Youth Corps is a proud member organization of the Oregon Youth Conservation Corps (OYCC) and the 21st Century Conservation Service Corps.


Projects that Phoenix Youth Corps often undertake include:

  • Recreational Trail Maintenance, where student crews maintain and improve the quality of trails on public lands.
  • Tree Plantation Management, to help reduce fuel load on BLM timber plantations by taking limbs from the fragile understory.
  • Restoration and Revitalization, student crews work with the BLM and the Douglas County Soil and Conservation District to restore wildlife habitats.  


Students who are actively enrolled in the program during the school year earn $125.00 in scholarship funds for every month they participate through OYCC (lifetime maximum of $1,500.00). These OSAC scholarship dollars can to be used for costs related to future educational opportunities such as community college tuition, books, or trade school.
