The Student Conservation Association’s Seattle Community Crews offer financially-insecure and diverse urban youth a paid opportunity to gain environmental education and workforce development skills through hands-on conservation projects at local parks and green spaces. SCA operates two to four Community Crews in the Seattle area each summer, each comprised of 5-8 high school youth and 1-2 leaders who complete four weeks of conservation service that includes building and repairing trails, cleaning shorelines, tracking and monitoring invasive species, and restoring habitats for native species. Grant funding will support SCA’s 2021 summer program.
