Focus Areas

  • Environment

Canyon Country Discovery Center creates lifelong learning experiences about the Colorado Plateau for people of all ages and backgrounds through education, service, adventure, and conservation programs.

  • About Us
    The Canyon Country Youth Corps (CCYC) is a program operated by the Four Corners School of Outdoor Education in Monticello, Utah. CCYC provides opportunities for youth and young adults, ages 15-25, to participate in service work projects on public lands in Southeastern Utah in partnership with the land-managing agencies of the region.

    Projects include trail maintenance and construction; fence construction, repair or demolition; habitat restoration; mechanical and non-mechanical thinning; invasive species removal and treatment; and other conservation related projects in backcountry and front country settings. CCYC involves youth from the four corners region as well as national hires.
  • Our Impact
    The CCYC experience improves work readiness, employment prospects, and economic independence for youth.

    The CCYC experience fosters a healthy lifestyle: respect for self, others, natural resources, and the outdoors.

    The CCYC experience pays a wages, provides AmeriCorps education awards to youth who work 300 hours or more, allows youth to work towards completion of their GED, and improves job and life skills.
