Montana Conservation Corps

About Montana Conservation Corps

Montana Conservation Corps' (MCC) promise is to ignite the potential - for leadership, for service, for action and resilience - that exists in every person. We are committed to helping our participants practice skills that help them to shape their future. Founded in 1991, MCC is a private, nonprofit organization that serves Montana (and neighboring states), with offices in Bozeman, Helena, Missoula, and Kalispell. MCC receives Federal grant money through the Corporation for National & Community Service, which is used to provide participant stipends and education awards, as well as to support our programming. By weaving together leadership development, teamwork, civic engagement, and work-skills training with direct service to our lands and communities, MCC helps members develop competencies for achieving success. In return, our corps members protect amazing wild places like Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks, the Bob Marshall Wilderness, and local trails and parks. While most of the work we accomplish is in the field, our main goal is not to build trails but to help members develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to be active citizens in their community.

Our participants work on physically demanding and essential natural resource and conservation projects on some of the most breathtaking landscapes in the Northern Rockies and Plains. Here at MCC, we focus on the growth of our participants, positively impacting our climate and environment, and transferable job skills. Through a term of service with MCC, participants will learn practical job skills, build confidence, strengthen communication and leadership competencies, and develop the ability to work well with people from all walks of life.
