GETTING THINGS DONE FOR MICHIGAN

YouthWork is proud to partner with young adults and community organizations from around the state to complete environmental and conservation  projects for our local communities.

We all benefit from YouthWork in many ways:

Our youth members learn important job and life skills, complete incredible, visible, and lasting projects in their home communities, and build lifelong relationships with other members and YouthWork staff.

As AmeriCorps members, our youth have the opportunity to earn living stipends and education awards if they are successful in YouthWork Conservation Corps!

Our communities receive quality services and save limited resources when YouthWork members complete local service projects for non-profit and public partners. 

Our businesses  benefit from a better prepared and skilled community of employees - employees that our economy needs to thrive.

Our people (that's YOU!) enjoy new and improved trails and boardwalks, cleaner rivers, lakes, and shorelines, and thousands of newly planted trees and native plants.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

“YouthWork utilizes a "no project without a partner" mantra. As a program model, we engage our partners by referencing the classic children's story,  "Stone Soup." YouthWork brings the pot and many of the ingredients to complete a project, making the soup. We look to our partners to identify what "ingredient" they can place in the pot to ensure the project's success and to make it meaningful for our members, the environment, and our local communities!”​
