    About Montana Conservation Corps

    Montana Conservation Corps (MCC) is a nationally-recognized nonprofit that instills hope and purpose in a new generation of young leaders who get things done to improve our lands and communities. Through hands-on service, our participants, including teens, young adults, and veterans, develop the self-awareness, grit, people skills, connection to place, and respect for their own power to enact change, to be leaders, stewards of the land, and engaged citizens who improve their communities. In turn, these young leaders improve hundreds of miles of trails and tens of thousands of acres of habitat each year. In 2017, over 600 youth, from local communities and reservations, and recruited nationally into our AmeriCorps program, will serve on a crew or as an intern for 3 to 11 months. MCC is based in Bozeman, MT, with regional offices in Bozeman, Helena, Kalispell, and Missoula. We work throughout the Northern Rockies and Plains.
