About Southwest Conservation Corps
The Southwest Conservation Corps (SCC) is a non-profit, AmeriCorps-affiliated organization, whose mission is to empower individuals to positively impact their lives, their communities and the environment. SCC engages motivated youth and young adults, ages 14 - 30, to complete challenging and impactful conservation and service projects on public lands. Projects may include trail construction & maintenance, habitat improvement, invasive species removal, hazardous fuels reduction, re-vegetation and local environmental service projects.
Our programs focus on place-based learning, life skills development, appreciation of diversity, civic responsibility and career development. SCC also provides an opportunity for Corps Members to learn about the local environment, environmental issues and introduces individuals to recreation and resource management careers
