Impacting Future Conservation Leaders


This is the story of the impact that SCA has on a young person’s passion and future ambitions as a conservationist through the eyes of  one intern. Allison Joyce served as an SCA Centennial Volunteer Ambassador at John Muir, Rosie the Riverter, Eugene O’Neill and Port Chicago National Historic Parks. Her story reflects the growth, ambition and evolution of a young person as they begin to see themselves as a leader in the conservation movement.

Allison reflects on how SCA helped her realize the possibilities that are available to her – in her career and as a conservationists. Through SCA, she understands that her role and responsibility are much larger than she originally realized. Her commitment to conservation is now a key part of who she is as a person and what she wants to do as a career.

SCA programs are made possible, in part, by the support of individuals who believe in helping young people realize not only the power and importance of nature, but also the responsibility that they – as tomorrow’s future leaders – have in protecting it. Help us transform more lives and conserve more lands through service to nature. Make a donation to SCA today.
