Conservation Mission

The mission of Forest Service Job Corps Civilian Conservation Centers (JCCCCs) is to train eligible youth, ages 16 to 24 with educational, social and vocational skills, while assisting in the conservation of the Nation’s public natural resources. The Forest Service operates 28 JCCCCs that span 7 Forest Service Regions and 22 forests and grasslands. The talents of Job Corps students are enlisted in a diverse array of Forest Service programs, although Job Corps students are most widely known for their program contributions in urban forestry, hazardous fuels reduction, construction and firefighting. JCCCC students are available for Forest Service projects ranging from forest and ecosystem activities to the rehabilitation and weatherization of facilities and developed recreation sites, hazardous fuels projects, and woody biomass conversion projects.
