Through a term of service with MCC, participants not only walk away with valuable technical and field skills, but also develop competencies to achieve success in a wide variety of careers. Crew Members experience the full measure of their character and discover their capacity to lead change in their communities and, just as importantly, in their own lives.  If you want to address urgent climate change issues and make a positive impact on the environment, then this is the perfect opportunity for you! 

Each crew will consist of 4 members and 2 leaders. Crews will work and camp for up to 10 days at a time in frontcountry and backcountry locations in all types of weather conditions.  Each member will get basic first aid/CPR certifications, and, more importantly, a professional stepping stone to agencies like BLM, Forest Service, and the Parks Service! Beyond that, you are helping so many others to connect to the great outdoors and improving our environment.

A term of service with MCC places our participants in an excellent position for future federal hiring and conservation careers!
