Every little bit of the earth needs saving, even those portions that are right in your neighborhood. You know this. That's why you make your parents recycle, it's why you ride your bike instead of driving, it’s why you’re never caught without that reusable shopping bag. If you are a high school student living in one of the communities listed to the right, SCA's Community Programs offer you a way to make a more visible, more enduring impact. You're guaranteed to make friends, improve the health of your city, and start on your way to becoming a leader in the local conservation movement. Community programs will also set you on the path to other SCA opportunities, like National Crews and Conservation Internships.
The school year program is active on weekends from September through May, while Summertime Crews do their thing five days a week June through August. Both programs team you up with other local young conservationists to restore parks, waterfronts, and urban landscapes.
