California Conservation Corps
The California Conservation Corps is a department within the California Natural Resources Agency. It is the oldest and largest conservation corps in the nation.
The CCC program provides young men and women 18 – 25 years old a year of paid service to the State of California. During their year of service, Corpsmembers work on environmental projects and respond to natural and man-made disasters. Through this work, they gain skills and experience that lead to meaningful careers. Their motto is “Hard work, low pay, miserable conditions and more!” We are dedicated to developing our Corpsmembers into citizens with character, credentials, and commitment.
