CorpsTHAT can help you accomplish critical conservation projects while providing young adults from the regional community an opportunity to learn about land management issues and challenges. Partnering becomes a win/win situation for the community, CorpsTHAT members, and land managers by providing meaningful opportunities for young Deaf people to complete important community and natural resources projects. We are a job training and youth development organization providing our Deaf and hard of hearing crew members with outdoor experiences and employment opportunities through national service. Our goal is to promote individual responsibility and ethical behavior, instill solid work habits and attitudes and empower them to change their lives, their communities, and their environment through conservation work that benefits us all.
Why hire CorpsTHAT's youth crew?
Conservation corps youth crew members are trained and ready to spend a summer session living and working outdoors to restore our natural resources.
