The Southwest Conservation Corps (SCC) is a program of the non-profit service organization, Conservation Legacy, that is built on the legacy of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) that operated from 1933-1942.
SCC provides youth and young adults opportunities to complete conservation projects on public lands. While serving with SCC, members receive training on job skills, conflict resolution, leadership, teamwork, and environmental stewardship. Programs are developed using a step ladder approach to provide a progression of skill development based on a member’s needs. Members receive a weekly living allowance, training, and an AmeriCorps Education Award (for qualifying individuals).
Southwest Conservation Corps was awarded a Bureau of Land Management (BLM) grant from the Colorado (CO) and New Mexico (NM) BLM State Offices to support small corps teams. Under this grant, SCC and sub-recipient Rocky Mountain Youth Corps (RMYC) work collaboratively with BLM personnel to complete vegetative, soil, and stream resource surveys according to the Assessment, Inventory, & Monitoring (AIM) methodology across CO and NM with many BLM Field and District Offices. At SCC, this cohort of crews and staff is known as the Ecological Monitoring Program. The continuation of this initiative and this position is funding-dependent.
