You care. Do Something. We’ll Help.

Spring 2010 Environmental Leadership Training Series
The Chicago Conservation Corps is now recruiting for its Spring 2010 Environmental Leadership Training Series. During the training, you’ll learn from community and environmental leaders about urban environmental challenges (land, air, and water issues, etc.) and opportunities for change; then you’ll lead an environmental service project in your community with C3 support and resources.
Note: Chicago Conservation Corps (C3) does not provide support for gardening projects, however we ask that you work with our partner program, Greencorps Chicago, on community gardening efforts. Learn more about Greencorps here.
