Our mission is to provide hands-on environmental stewardship and
personal development experiences for young people ages 15 to 25.
Among their activities, corpsmembers build bridges, log shelters,
trails, and campgrounds; improve wildlife habitat; plant and maintain
forests; conduct vegetation inventories; stock and survey fish; and
perform fire suppression and other emergency response work. Corpsmembers
are also involved in community service projects such as environmental
education with local schools and developing outdoor learning classrooms.
Corpsmembers receive a living allowance and training in career
development, citizenship and life skills, natural resource management,
and environmental awareness. In 1995, MCC became affiliated with the
AmeriCorps National Service program.
