LOCATION: Monticello, UT 

Member Duties and Service Description: All crew members participate in outdoor conservation-based service work, crew living, and educational experiences. Projects consist of trail and fence construction and maintenance, wildlife habitat improvements, wetland and riparian rehabilitation, and fire fuels reduction. Work will vary depending on the crew that you are placed on and needs of agencies like the Bureau of Land Management, Forest Service, or National Park Service. AmeriCorps members may not participate in any prohibited activities per the Member Service Agreement. The work is physically demanding and extremely rewarding. 

Education: The crew’s educational component is an integral part of the CCYC Program.  Crews devote part of every hitch,  to a short lesson, journaling exercise or discussion.


Training: Crews will participate in technical trainings pertinent to their work projects. This may include First Aid training, chainsaw training, trail skills training or herbicide training. Training provided will depend on the crew that the member is placed on.


Housing:  All crews camp while on work projects and live in a cooperative crew community. CCYC allows the use of available communal camp gear during work projects and the use of our basecamp in Monticello, UT, on days off. Anyone living in the communal housing is required to abide by the CCYC housing contract, failure to do so will result in removal from housing and potentially the program.

CCYC crews work varying schedules of 4-10 days on and 2-6 days off. Typically, in a two-week time frame every 80-90 hours on, 50-60 hours are off. Crews will be camping in remote locations during time on.  During time off crews have the opportunity to rent space at our base camp facility in Monticello, UT. AmeriCorps members must take a thirty (30) minute lunch break each day which does not count towards the total term of service hours.

ESSENTIAL JOB DUTIES: Crewmembers will be expected to build and maintain technical trails, construct habitat enclosures, construct fences, work on invasive species removal and/or work with chainsaws on fuels reduction, among other projects. They may work at high elevations for extended periods of time in a variety of weather conditions. As part of a crew, crewmembers will be expected to perform assigned tasks ranging from kitchen/camp set-up to cooking dinner and other camp chores.

WORKING ENVIRONMENT/PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS: Crewmembers should lead physically active lives prior to becoming a member of a crew. Crewmembers will perform the duties of this position in several different settings.  The work sessions will be located in desert and mountain environments of Southeast Utah. The position requires bending, lifting, pushing, stooping, carrying and other demanding physical labor. Crewmembers will be exposed to physically and mentally demanding situations.   
CCYC provides transportation from our Monticello, UT basecamp to and from project sites.

However, personal travel expenses will not be reimbursed. If you have your own vehicle, it will make your experience in the Four Corners Region much more memorable and exciting on days off. There are many outdoor activities in the area and we encourage everyone to get out and explore, whether on your own or with a group. If you live locally, CCYC may provide transportation to and from Monticello at the beginning and the end of the season.
