Crews may also complete technical and/or specialized projects depending on project partner needs, including disaster relief if the opportunity arises. Each crew consists of 4 members and a  crew leader.

Conservation Corps crews work with local and governmental organizationson projects that include Ship Island restoration, water sampling, and invasive species management. 

Our programs focus on workplace based learning, life skills development, conservation service work, appreciation of diversity, civic responsibility, and career development.
