Our YouthCore program provides paid employment and skill-building opportunities for youth–while offering support on conservation efforts, trail building, public land projects, and services to local community members.
Youth crews bond and work together on many types of outdoor work projects.Working on public lands, YouthCore teams have worked at local ski areas, helped build mountain bike trails and mastered ecological, agricultural, and land management practices. They’ve helped dozens of community members with moves and outdoor work projects. Hundreds of local youth have gained valuable skills and provided much-needed services through internships and paid work on our YouthCore crews.


The BLM and Woape has had a close working relationship over the last several years. AntFarm YouthCore has been a key member in development, construction, and continual maintenance of recreation resources within the Sandy River Basin focusing primarily on trail construction and maintenance projects. In all facets of our relationship with AntFarm YouthCore, projects have been completed to the absolute highest standard.
