    Overview

    Appalachian Conservation Corps (ACC) emphasizes the recruitment and engagement of diverse teams and individuals who learn from each other and their projects in a supportive environment.

    ACC Youth Crews introduce youth and young adults aged 16-18 to community service and resource conservation through hands-on project work. Projects may include trail construction & maintenance, habitat improvement, improvements to recreation access, re-vegetation, and much more. Through a combination of education, service, and professional development, ACC Youth Crews provide a well-rounded, challenging, productive, and beneficial experience. Get outdoors, work hard, get things done. Through the sweat, bugs, and physical work, it may not always be easy, but it's great.

    Youth crews typically run during the summer months - June, July, and/or August. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.

    Positions are open now based in Harrisonburg, VA and Beckley, WV.
