The CWF Canadian Conservation Corps (CCC) is a three part program designed to deeply engage young Canadians in our natural and cultural heritage through service, adventure and reflection. This program will recruit 90 young people (ages 18 to 30) and will engage them over a 9-month period in a comprehensive program that will progress from wilderness journeys to field work and ultimately, to leading a meaningful community service program in their own communities across Canada.
What's involved | Who can join | Benefits | How can I participate
Members of the CCC program will take part in three distinct stages:
The CCC program will recruit 90 youth (ages 18 to 30). Participants will be recruited with two goals in mind: to represent Canadian diversity and to create an environment which maximizes the chance of lifelong success for all participants. Participants will be recruited from all walks of Canadian life. No matter what community or background you come from, we want you to be involved and we will help you be a part of this amazing experience. Special attention will be given to recruit youth from both official languages, as well as youth who are of Indigenous descent or new to our country.
Over a nine-month period, participants will progress from wilderness journeys to science field work to urban education outreach, as a way of teaching them to engage with their community at large through meaningful service.
The program will cover basic living expenses to ensure that all participants are able to complete the program without financial hardship to themselves or their family.
Participants in the CCC program will benefit from a rich life learning experience designed to help develop a newfound passion for conservation. In addition, participants who complete all three stages of the program will receive a certificate, a letter of reference from each of their supervisors and access to our alumni network that will connect people with the conservation community.
