Corporate Partners

Since 1957, more than 70,000 young people have joined the ranks of the SCA for hands-on service projects that have had immediate and lasting effects on our environment. We clean up beaches. We repair trails. We protect wildlife. We renew public spaces. We transform lives.

Every year, SCA recruits over 100,000 participants from high schools and 350+ colleges and universities across the country. And every year, more than 20,000 qualified applications pour in.

And yet, every year we turn away 90% of these qualified applicants. It’s not because there isn’t work for them to do—because in our National Parks alone, there is an estimated $11.5-billion backlog of deferred maintenance projects. Simply put: We can’t accept more applicants because of limited funding.

There’s a simple answer. Corporate partners help us put our youth to work and restore, protect and conserve our environment.
