Empowering the next generation

Idaho Conservation Corps offers a challenging education and job-training experience that helps youth and young adults from diverse backgrounds develop the skills they need to lead full and productive lives. Our programs include residential conservation crews for both youth and young adults and an internship program for college aged participants.

Partner Spotlight

In 2020, Idaho Conservation Corps continues to expand its partnership with the One Track Mind Foundation (OTM ). This nonprofit organization of passionate explorers and adventurers is committed to preserving, expanding, and building multi-use singletrack trails in the Gem State. This year, OTM is funding 7 weeks of youth crew projects, including the remote backcountry leadership crew. The crews will be working in the Payette National Forest on the Loon Lake and Ruby Meadows Trails. In 2019, OTM funding allowed 85 ICC youth to perform 11,431 hours of trail maintenance in the Payette National Forest. Significant outcomes included improving 33 miles of trail and constructing 538 drainage structures. Idaho Conservation Corps shares OTM’s vision of sharing the ‘thrill of the trail’ with more people, and enlisting local youth in this work. Thank you, One Track Mind, for your ongoing and generous support!
