Adult Crews

SCC empowers individuals to positively impact their lives, their communities and the environment. 

The Southwest Conservation Corps (SCC) is a non-profit, AmeriCorps-affiliated organization. The SCC selects young adults, generally ages 18-25, to complete conservation work projects on public lands throughout the Southwest. SCC programs encourage environmental stewardship, foster community partnerships, and emphasize experiential learning. The majority of SCC’s programs are residential programs, with crews camping in either front-country or back-country settings for 4-10 day periods; schedules may vary by program and region. SCC serves a diverse population that is representative of the Southwest; including youth, graduates, veterans, and a cross-section of ethnicities and income levels.
