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. 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. 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.
