SCA Massachusetts, in partnership with AmeriCorps and the Massachusetts Service Alliance, is currently in its sixteenth year of programming. This program partners with the Department of Conservation and Recreation to teach youth about the environment and to complete high priority conservation projects across the Commonwealth.
In October, 17 corps members arrived at the Kenneth Dubuque State Forest and began working at local schools to teach environmental education and standards-based science, plan service learning projects, and assist various nonprofits in the area.
In March, the crew will grow to a corps of 26 to embark on conservation work from new trail construction to building bridges to removing invasive species at parks and forests across Massachusetts.
Over the course of the 10-month program, the SCA Massachusetts corps members will teach and mentor over 1,000 students and complete over 60 high priority conservation service projects. The positive impact that their work will have on the land and people's lives, including their own, will be unquantifiable.
