Marin Youth Ecology Corps (MYEC)
The Marin Youth Ecology Corps (MYEC) is one of many examples of Marin County initiatives to engage local youth. In conjunction with Conservation Corps North Bay, at-risk Marin County youth between the ages of 16-24, complete 8 weeks of paid conservation work. This invaluable work experience empowers the participants with job readiness skills in a fun, stimulating and educational atmosphere. The program is one of several county initiatives that engage youth and impart appropriate workplace behaviors essential to retaining employment.

Youth Working for Change (YWC)
Youth Working for Change (YWC) is a job-readiness program for Marin County youth sponsored by the Marin County Probation Department and operated via the MEC. The goal of the program is to promote employment as an opportunity for youth involved with the juvenile justice system who are interested in making changes in their lives. The experience of employment can help provide the self-confidence and direction that many of these youth can use to turn their lives around.
