Youth Outdoors AmeriCorps members serve February-December leading crews of Saint Paul and Minneapolis youth in environmental education and community service projects after-school and on Saturdays.  In addition to completing environmental restoration projects, education curriculum is taught that helps youth build practical skills, connect to the natural environment, become active citizens and prepare for meaningful careers. The program focuses on youth development and job training, with environmental conservation as a learning vehicle.

While not leading youth, members will be part of an AmeriCorps field crew that involves physically-challenging, team-oriented outdoor service projects while learning about the environment and networking with natural resource professionals. Projects sites are located throughout the state, including urban settings and extreme wilderness. Service work is performed almost exclusively outdoors and may involve camping for several days at a time. 

Corpsmembers receive training in youth leadership, civic engagement, natural resource management and personal development skills. Corpsmembers also receive training and complete various conservation projects such as tree planting, prairie restoration, streambank stabilization, wildlife surveys, carpentry/construction, timber stand improvement, lakeshore restoration, erosion control, trail construction and maintenance, exotic species management and wildlife habitat improvement.
