Southeast Youth Corps Prepares for Launch

From Southeast Youth Corps

Last evening, May 28th, a small group of local teens and parents gathered at the new Southeast Youth Corps office in Chattanooga, TN.  The topics of the evening centered around preparing these young adults for their upcoming experience as Corpsmembers on this summer’s inaugural Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) crew.

In addition to taking care of the necessary paperwork business, we all took this opportunity to discuss gear, camping logistics and details of  a-day-in-the life of a Corpsmember.  Most importantly, SYC recognized these youth for being pioneers within the community, and applauded them for stepping out of their comfort zones to participate in this challenging, yet rewarding experience. These youth will help set the standard for future SYC crews, and create a legacy that future Corpsmembers and Crew Leaders will discuss around campfires for years to come.

June 15th marks the official beginning of the YCC season, so stay tuned to the SYC Facebook page and blog for weekly updates on what these amazing youth are up to.
