21st Century Conservation Service Corps

Youth Corps takes a break from clearing trails

21st Century Conservation Service Corps formally known as the Public Land Corps is a bold national effort to put thousands of America’s young people 16 - 30 years old and military veterans 35 years old or younger to work protecting, restoring, and enhancing America’s great outdoors.

Through the 21CSC, young people and veterans will accomplish meaningful work, and gain important personal and professional skills while building a lifelong connection to the outdoors. For a complete list of partners providing job and internship opportunities in this endeavor visit
