The mission of CCCI, a grassroots 501(c4) nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that advocates for the re-establishment of the U.S. Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), is to enable our unemployed and underemployed citizens to be engaged in practical and national service.
The purpose of this program is for the benefit of our community and nation. The CCC would aid in transforming our country toward becoming a resilient, sustainable, and ecologically balanced culture.
Programs like this would help our society to survive, thrive, and prosper. Those who enroll in the CCC would receive job training in meaningful vocational training, develop on-the-job skills, and become first responders in disaster relief.
Based on the vision of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s first work program initiative from 1933 through 1942, our organization advocates for a re-established CCC program in the U.S. After its re-establishment, we hope for his vision to be adopted by the world through his last initiative created in 1945, the United Nations (UN). Then together, we can create world peace through the mutual effort of our young future leaders and stewards of the Earth and Waters while saving our planet.
A Solution For Our Climate Emergency
Founded in 2010, the Civilian Conservation Corps Initiative, Inc. (CCCI) is a bipartisan grassroots nonprofit organization that wants an alternative National Service and believes that Conservation is one of the most important functions of the federal government. We propose to the American people and the U.S. congress to re-establish the enormously successful all public sector agency—the U.S. Civilian Conservation Corps or CCC.
The CCC was first launched in 1933 by the country’s 32nd president, Franklin D. Roosevelt who introduced the (New Deal) during the height of the Great Depression. This investment by the U.S. government benefitted Our Nation’s Human and Natural Resource Capital. Among other things, the CCC demonstrated there need be no conflict between the preservation of the environment and the creation of jobs.
We aim to make our fellow Americans aware of Federal legislation so we can bring back this great public works program in to the 21st century that will combat unemployment while alleviating the impact of deforestation and the depletion of natural resources, ultimately revitalizing our society and the planet.
“The Purpose of Human Life Is to Serve, and to Show Compassion and the Will to Help Others.”
– Dr. Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965)

More About Our Cause
CCCI advocates for the passage of the CCC and Jobs Act that shall recreate the domestic policy of the 20th century CCC and to make Conservation one of the most important parts of the federal government.
This act would again authorize The President to re-establish the CCC and Jobs Act, as a real National Service, and as a means of providing gainful employment to unemployed and underemployed U.S. citizens through valuable public works and other opportunities. It would also create a peaceful mission for our millitary on our soil.
The re-established CCC and Jobs Act would annualy provide green job prospects for 300,000+ young single adult American Citizens in all 50 states and U.S. territories including older War Veterans, and Native Americans can enroll. These enrollees would begin to work on the huge backlog of reconstruction projects so urgently needed on over 700 million acres of both urban and rural public lands across our country. These enrollees would receive remuneration for their work and have the opportunity for 10 hours of free class instruction at the end of their work day to complete their GED or college degree. This program aims to recreate the middle class in America.
We at CCCI Inc. believe in putting Americans to work on jobs that need to be done, thus creating stewards of the earth and building national assets for future generations.
