VOC announces their Stepping Up Stewardship Toolkit: a first-of-its-kind, comprehensive set of resources specifically designed to help other groups and organizations start or expand their volunteer programs.
Developed in response to the ever-growing challenges associated with effectively caring for our outdoor places, VOC's Toolkit offers free guides on subjects ranging from selecting a good volunteer project to making volunteers feel valued.
Each guide is accompanied by supplemental materials providing VOC's templates, checklists, and other how-tos that further enhance the ability to easily put volunteers to work on public lands. The toolkit materials may also be supplemented with technical skills training through the Outdoor Stewardship Institute along with customized VOC training and consulting assistance.
Visit the VOC website and download and use the materials provided.

This handbook defines the role of the SCA and the Programs’ policies and guidelines. It is to be referred to and followed. There are three sections- general information, a section specifically for the Leader Team Crew Leader, and a section specifically for the Leader Team Members.
This handbook is intended to provide consistency among the National Park Service (NPS) units responsible for implementing the Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) and to offer guidance for establishing and operating the YCC throughout the NPS.
The Recreational Trails Program directly addresses our desire to put young people to work, provide equitable access to nature, and provide resilient responses to natural disasters
