Vermont Youth Conservation Corps’ Food and Farm Program is Hiring

The Farm @ VYCC is hiring for several AmeriCorps positions! 
 
The Vermont Youth Conservation Corps’ Food and Farm Program is a dynamic youthdevelopment, diversified agriculture and food security initiative. We believe in the power that food has to connect us to the land, our community, and each other. We engage young people in organic farming and culinary education on our historic 400-acre campus in 
Richmond, Vermont where we grow organically certified vegetables and pasture-raised chickens that are distributed to more than 400 families through our 
nationally recognized Health Care Share program. 
 
Project Leads (7 positions) 
 
Project Leads serve on the farm from freezing March mornings, through sweaty July days, until crisp October evenings. They serve out in the fields, in 
greenhouses, work with livestock, and jump in to problem solve the daily challenges of the farm. Project Leads bring their adaptability, commitment, 
and passion for food & farming to the farm program. 
 
Crew Leaders (7 positions; 5 youth crew leaders and 2 production crew leaders) 
 
Farm Crew Leaders’ responsibilities shift across the season. Spring is for learning and doing: tending crops in greenhouses and planting the fields; working with volunteers. In summer, they lead either a youth or young adult crew. In fall, they harvest mountains of vegetables in support of Health Care Share program. There are two types of Crew Leader positions- leading a crew of youth or young adults. Regardless of age, crews work in all areas of thefarm; they plant and harvest, care for livestock, and explore how to cook with what they’ve grown.
