Montana Conservation Corps

Montana Conservation Corps is a nonprofit organization that engages youth and adults through hands-on conservation service and education. Our participants work on physically demanding and essential natural resource and conservation projects on some of the most breathtaking landscapes in the Northern Rockies and Plains.  Here at MCC, we focus on the growth of our participants, positively impacting our climate and environment, and transferable job skills.  Founded in 1991, MCC is a private, nonprofit organization.  There are 4 regions, with approximately 40 staff and 450 members who serve each year in leader, member or intern positions.  MCC receives Federal grant money through the Corporation for National & Community Service.  This grant is used to provide participant stipends and education awards, as well as to support our programming:  offering leadership development to Leaders and Members.  MCC offers individual and crew-based programming that uses natural resource and community service projects to foster personal and crew development.  While most of the work we accomplish is in the field, our main goal is not to build trails but to help members develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to be active citizens in their community.  Through a term of service with MCC, participants will learn practical job skills, build confidence, strengthen communication and leadership competencies, and develop the ability to work well with people from all walks of life.
