Green Mountain College has entered into a partnership with Vermont Youth Conservation Corps (VYCC) to offer a tuition discount for eligible employees. VYCC employees who have completed four weeks of full-time employment are eligible to receive a 15% discount for enrollment into a full-time online program, or a $20,000 award to full-time residential students.
“This is the latest step in our active outreach to local organizations that demonstrate commitments to social and environmental sustainability similar to GMC,” said GMC Provost Tom Mauhs-Pugh. “We want to give employees of these organizations a clear path to local, affordable education in relevant programs that will help their career advancement.”
Vermont Youth Conservation Corps provides education and training to youth ages 16-24 through hands-on outdoor work in conservation and agriculture. Corps Members complete projects that benefit the environment and local communities in a program infused with structured education.
