The Trail Town Outreach Corps (TTOC) is an SCA sustainability corps from across the United States doing sustainable economic development in the rural Pennsylvania communities. This multi-year partnership blends the missions of the SCA and the Trail Town Program (a special project of the Allegheny Trail Alliance and The Progress Fund) while engaging local citizens, business leaders, civic clubs, non-profit organizations, elected officials, and public office entities in ongoing and upcoming local and regional efforts.
In the pursuit of the relatively undeveloped niche of rural sustainability, the Outreach Corps builds upon the region's strong cultural heritage and rich green infrastructure while also engaging and building upon the economic and cultural momentum in Pittsburgh - the hub of Southwestern PA which stands as a terrific example of sustainability initiatives succeeding in an urban context.
