AmeriCorps Program Overview – Better the land – Better yourself!

The Southwest Conservation Corps engages motivated young adults, ages 18 -34, to complete challenging and impactful conservation and service projects throughout Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico and Utah. Projects may include, trail construction & maintenance, habitat improvement, hazardous fuels reduction, re-vegetation and local environmental service projects. Crews may also complete technical and/or specialized projects depending on project partner needs, including disaster relief if the opportunity arises.

Each crew consists of 3 members and 2 leaders. Crews work and camp for up to 8 days at a time in frontcountry and backcountry locations in all types of weather conditions. Schedule may vary depending on location and program. SCC crews work in a variety of national parks, national forests and other areas throughout the Southwest. Crews prepare all their own meals and work together as a group to complete all the necessary chores.

Our programs focus on place based learning, life skills development, appreciation of diversity, civic responsibility and career development. SCC also provides an opportunity for Corpsmembers to learn about the local environment, environmental issues and introduces individuals to recreation and resource management careers. When not in the field, members are expected to find their own housing.
