Corps have long been engaged in conservation and ecosystem management and restoration projects in urban communities and on public lands.
Corps of The Corps Network have extensive experience in youth education, workforce development and green infrastructure project completion all across the country. As federal, state, and local government, look to improve their water infrastructure, and utilities look to replace an aging workforce – Corps offer a replicable model and sustainable partnership opportunities that accomplish multiple goals.
Existing Corps can be easily incorporated into ongoing and planned infrastructure projects in a variety of project-based, education, and community outreach capacities, and new Corps could be created through innovative partnerships with interested state and local governments or non-profits.

This handbook defines the role of the SCA and the Programs’ policies and guidelines. It is to be referred to and followed. There are three sections- general information, a section specifically for the Leader Team Crew Leader, and a section specifically for the Leader Team Members.
This handbook is intended to provide consistency among the National Park Service (NPS) units responsible for implementing the Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) and to offer guidance for establishing and operating the YCC throughout the NPS.
The Recreational Trails Program directly addresses our desire to put young people to work, provide equitable access to nature, and provide resilient responses to natural disasters
Funding available for trail maintenance efforts on USFS lands.
