MCC values the service of veterans. The training and experience veterans gained during military service to our country enhance our programs that impact youth mentoring and resource conservation projects.
Veterans have always served with distinction in diverse capacities at MCC while developing skills for future careers as teachers, natural resource professionals in public or nonprofit sector jobs, or wildland firefighters, or other outdoor related fields. In many of the positions we offer, there are opportunities to obtain professional certifications for chainsaw operation, wildland firefighting, or noxious weed chemical treatment. Positions that you may be of interest include:
Veterans in Field Crew Based Opportunities
