And check out our interview with Marquis, a recent Great Lakes CCC high school graduate!


Our mission is to leverage resources among Great Lakes communities to train and educate disadvantaged populations for credentials that close the skills gap, improve water quality, build habitat, grow the legacy of the original Civilian Conservation Corps of the 1930s and make the region more competitive in the global economy.


The Great Lakes Community Conservation Corps (Great Lakes CCC) was conceived by an assembly of 25 CCC alumni at the 75th anniversary event of the Civilian Conservation Corps in 2008 to address regional social and physical challenges in southeastern Wisconsin. Great Lakes CCC serves the Greater Milwaukee region of Kenosha, Walworth, Racine, Milwaukee, Waukesha, Washington and Ozaukee counties.

Conceived 2008
