MCSC traces it roots back to the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC)

Since its inception in 1991, MCSC has played a central role in Milwaukee’s efforts to improve the economic self-sufficiency of disadvantaged youth by working to meet the needs of the community through visible and measurable community service. MCSC traces it roots back to the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) of the 1930s and is one of only ten urban youth corps in the nation providing at-risk youth the opportunity to learn new skills, earn a wage, acquire a driver’s license, serve their community, obtain a high school equivalency diploma, and prepare themselves for post-corps college or trade apprenticeships.

Our young men and women (corps members) are part of a very unique program where they have the opportunity to learn the education behind making their community a better place to live and also learn the skills necessary to help them implement their ideas in the real world.
