Like nature itself, SCA is always evolving – to better serve you, our members and our public lands. We are constantly devising new solutions and improvements to be your youth partner of choice, and ultimately to help you achieve your own vital mission.
SCA: Your go-to partner
For more than 50 years, the Student Conservation Association (SCA) has been the go-to conservation partner of resource managers across America. We help you get the job done whether you need a single intern to conduct stream tests, two students to lead nature walks, or a team of ten to restore an ailing habitat.
Our applicants are diverse, motivated and highly-qualified. Our partners constantly tell us that SCA members bring new energy and renewed focus to the workplace. And with a nationwide candidate pool of more than 10,000 current and recent students, you’re sure to get the specific skills and abilities you need to meet your conservation objectives.
You’ll also help launch the next generation of conservation leaders – and quite possibly discover your next hire. It’s no coincidence that thousands of SCA alumni are employed on public lands throughout the US. And by forging new links between today’s youth and the Great Outdoors, you’ll extend your site’s legacy for many years to come.
