Before the Peace Corps. Before AmeriCorps. Long before most organizations even heard the term “sustainability,” we were creating sustainable solutions. Since 1957, more than 75,000 young people have joined the ranks of SCA and have provided more than 28 million hours of hands-on service yielding immediate and lasting effects on our environment.
