Middle School

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.
