Why Partner with MHYC on a Project? 

MHYC Is Cost-Effective

MHYC crews have 8-10 members, including 1-2 Crew Leaders. Crews work on a "per week" basis. Each crew is contracted to work at least 320 hours collectively per week on land conservation projects. Crews are fully insured, trained and supervised and are equipped with most tools needed for a project—requiring very little time from your agency staff.   

MHYC Has A Proven Track Record

The Corps has 25 years of experience in putting youth to work on conservation projects for city, state and federal agencies. Crews earn an average satisfaction rate of 4.6 out of 5 from project sponsors.
