The Onondaga Earth Corps hires youth ages 15 to 18 for crewmember positions throughout the year (generally spring, summer and fall sessions). These crews typically work on a variety of outdoor projects over the course of the season. Much of the work is related to planting trees and maintaining them afterwards through the summer months. There is also opportunity for environmental education in city youth centers, work landscaping and improving private resident curb appeal, and working with nieghborhood outreach.
For information on the youth crew in 2017, please read our Youth Crew job description.
For Summer Youth positions, please refer to our information above detailing OEC’s summer job opportunities below. Please note, there are two processes, and it doesn’t hurt to do both!
