We are partnering with the Conservation Trust for North Carolina (CTNC) to support a crew with the group's North Carolina Youth Conservation Corps, allowing Parkway campgrounds and trails to realize improvements while young men and women learn about the wilderness and themselves.
The seven-week sessions combine the lessons of environmental stewardship, job and life skills, leadership, community service, and responsibility. Working under the supervision of leaders, the teams of 16- to 24-year-olds from across the state and a variety of backgrounds build a connection with nature and each other.
The project furthers the Foundation's goal to engage the next generation of stewards to champion the needs of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Learn more about the North Carolina Youth Conservation Corps.
our goal is $37,000
Help connect youth with the outdoors and improve the Parkway.
