An opportunity for coastal youth committed to protecting Lake Huron.

Coastal Conservation Youth Corps is opportunity for Lake Huron youth

Registration is now open for the Coastal Conservation Youth Corps (CCYC). This is a program for youths between 14 and 18 years of age to learn about coastal issues and opportunities. 

Week-long summer sessions will be held in the Town of Saugeen Shores (July 11-29) and the Town of Goderich (August 8-12, 2022). There is an additional autumn session to be hosted in Goderich over the weekends of September 17-18 and October 1-2.

The CCYC program offers experiential learning and a way for young people to gauge interest in environmental studies. The hours participants spend in the program can be credited towards the volunteer hours required for their secondary school diploma. More information and registration details can be found online at lakehuron.ca/ccyc

“Let’s help our youth continue to be engaged and excited about the shared waters and shoreline they are inheriting,” said Kerry Kennedy, Coastal Education Technician at the Lake Huron Coastal Centre. “Please help spread the word!”
