Middle School - Youth Programs Cancelled for 2020
Youth Expedition Programs Cancelled for 2020 Summer Season
Given the design of our youth program model, the contagiousness of COVID-19 and the often rapid onset of severe symptoms, MCC has determined, to ensure the safety of our adolescent participants, that it is prudent to cancel all of our summer programs for high school and middle school-age students.

Research demonstrates that the best approach to empower youth is to build skills and knowledge that can be used in service to others and that the conditions of belonging, heroes, sense of accomplishment, adventure, leadership, and responsibility are vital for success.
These best practices are integrated into every MCC program and delivered with a curriculum to help participants develop specifically in the areas of leadership, communication and teamwork, service and citizenship, stewardship, and hard work for quality results. During Middle School Expeditions, groups of six students work with MCC staff and AmeriCorps leaders as a crew on trails and habitat projects. Crew-based service provides the perfect vehicle for giving young people a tangible experience of addressing real-world challenges as well as developing and experiencing civic agency—the impact that they can have on their own life, their crew, their community, and their world.
Qualified individuals with disabilities and those from diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply. We provide reasonable accommodations for qualified individuals and are an equal opportunity employer.

Montana Conservation Corps is a 501 (c)3 nonprofit organization and relies on grants and charitable giving to offset the costs we incur to make our youth programs possible. We would greatly appreciate if those families who are financially able, could make a donation to help us offset the cost of the Youth Expeditions. This will ensure that we are able to continue offering these programs at no cost.
