About Montana Conservation Corps

Montana Conservation Corps is a nonprofit organization that empowers youth and young adults through hands-on conservation service and education. Each season we enroll over 300 young adults from across the country, age 18 and up, in our AmeriCorps program, and more than 100 local teens, ages 15 to 17, in our Youth Service Expedition program. Our participants camp in crews of four to six while working 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. Participants receive the experience of a lifetime through challenging projects and the rigors of camp life, coupled with education aimed at creating engaged citizens and lifelong environmental stewards. All of these factors create an ideal situation for personal growth that leads to increased confidence, communication and leadership skills, the ability to work well with people from all walks of life, and professional pathways in the natural resource conservation field.

“I liked everything about this internship. I was able see parts of the country many people don't get too. My bosses were very insightful and helpful. I enjoyed the work parts of it because I was working in the field with my hands. Rarely in the office doing paper work.”
