A Summer of Meaningful Service

National parks offer a variety of powerful place-based learning experiences including the 21st Century Conservation Service Corps. Through this program, youth and veterans work in parks learning technical and leadership skills while also protecting, restoring, and enhancing our national parks.

The unique initiative exposes corps members to training as they contribute to conservation and restoration work on national park lands, waterways, and cultural heritage sites. Participants often reflect on their work as being rewarding and formative; as they work to protect our national parks, they simultaneously develop valuable skills and a lifetime passion for parks.

This summer, the National Park Foundation supported several youth corps across the National Park System.

The 21st Century Conservation Service Corps program is a valuable program that provides unique skills, career opportunities, and inspires stewardship of our national parks. You can help support programs that encourage youth and community members to get outside and inspire the next generation of stewards for our national parks.
