  • The Civilian Conservation Corps (1933-1942)
  • The Civilian Conservation Corps was created in 1933 as a part of FDR’s New Deal Program. It was a public work relief program that provided jobs for primarily young, unmarried men as laborers in government-owned rural land. It was one of the New Deal’s most popular programs, and was directed by Robert Fechner.
  • I directed this program so it would provide job opportunities and help increase public awareness about the environment!
  • They created trails, fought forest fires, and helped maintain national parks. The program also increased public awareness for conserving natural resources. It notably provided jobs to over 10,000 Native Americans who were struck by the Great Depression.
  • Training programs within the CCC taught me how to make trails and fight forest fires.
  • I'm so glad the CCC gave me employment after I came back from the war!
  • The program can be categorized as one of the New Deal’s “Reliefs.” It's goal was to provide job opportunities for those who had difficulty finding jobs during the Great Depression. The program specifically sought to provide relief to WWI veterans, and also provided jobs for Native Americans. Over 3 million men ages 17-28 were employed, and were given housing, food, clothing, and $30 a month,
  • The program was a massive success. It created millions of jobs for unemployed young men, and the program planted nearly 3 billion trees in its efforts to reduce the effects of deforestation. Many national and states parks were upgraded with new lodges and trails being built. The program was incredibly popular, gaining overwhelming support from both Republicans and Democrats. It received sustained funding via the Emergency Relief Appropriation Act of 1935, and at its highest enrollment was at 500,000 men across 29,000 camps.
  • I support this program.
  • Begrudgingly, I have to agree with you
  • Despite its success, the program wa disbanded in 1942 due to lack of funding from the government. In its final years, enrollment had been waning as the effects of the Great Depression started to lessen and the job market improved. After conscription began in 1940 for WWII, less men were available to work there.
  • Here lies the CCC 1933-1942
