Re-establish the UNITED STATES CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORPS

We Urge the US Government to Re-establish the UNITED STATES CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORPS to INVEST and save our two most precious resources, our young adult population sector from 17-25 and our life giving natural resources.  Then after the CCC is re-established here then we can spread the CCC program via FDR's last alphabet soup initiative the UN.  Then the world can save our youth and they inturn would save our planet for a noble cause!

 

A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself. Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people.

~~ FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT, the 32nd President of the United States

“I have moments of real terror, when I think we may be losing this generation. We have got to bring these young people into the active life of the community... It has been said in this country we should deal with first things first, and in my estimation, the question before us is action on the problems of youth.”

~FDR's First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt -1934 (Our Best First Lady - BAR NONE!)

YOU can use your voice to save our Youth and Natural Resourse from oblivian and be a part of the grassroots effort and blow the dust off of 70 years and GO BACK TO THE FUTURE and to re-mobilize the "TREE ARMY" to put millions of work boots back on the ground for generations to come!

The original United States Civilian Conservation Corp was created in 1933 and lasted for nearly a decade from 1933 to 1942, the twentieth Century CCC
created the nation's largest civilian mobilization in US History.

The CCC was the most successful federal work program in US history. 

The CCC still is the government’s most lasting environmental effort as well. 

The CCC demonstrated that there was absolutely no conflict between the preservation of the environment and the creation of jobs.

The CCC will provide actual green job training, job creation and national service for future generations. and was the first and most popular program of the New Deal.

The revitalized CCC would enlist thousands of young Americans in all 50 states, Native America, and Territories, putting them to work on the huge backlog of reconstruction projects so urgently needed on the 700 million acres of both urban and rural public lands across our country.

Let’s put American’s to work on jobs that really need to be done, building national assets for future generations.

Currently HR 494, the 21st Century Civilian Conservation Corp Act sponsored by Ohio Representative Marcy Kaptur. This is a job creation program that re-establishes a Civilian Conservation Corp that puts to work unemployed and underemployed civilians to advance useful public works projects aimed at safeguarding natural resources and developing new transportation and infrastructure.

The 21st Century CCC will reinforce the principle of independence,
the now seemingly antiquated notion that no one willing to work should
be directly dependent on any other person or group for livelihood.
 
The CCC would also reduce the number of people relying on
income support, family credit, and other costly means-tested benefits.

Currently HR 494, the 21st Century Civilian Conservation Corp Act sponsored by Ohio Representative Marcy Kaptur. This is a job creation program that re-establishes a Civilian Conservation Corp that puts to work unemployed and underemployed civilians to advance useful public works projects aimed at safeguarding natural resources and developing new transportation and infrastructure.

Yet every year in America more than 1 million youth drop out of high school, crippling their chance at the American dream. Nearly one in six 16- to 24-year-olds is disconnected from the two structures that offer hope for their future – school and work. Promoting opportunity means opening multiple pathways for young people to connect to education, job training, employment and community service.

Drawing on the example of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Civilian Conservation Corps, we should also create a Conservation Corps to mobilize disadvantaged youth from urban areas to meet the needs of our urban national parks and waterways. National service has been shown to be a good bridge to full employment, and it comes at a low cost to government. A Conservation Corps would put youth immediately into productive work while meeting the needs of our nation to support and maintain our national heritage. The youth who participate would be eligible for an education award and service stipend. And the cost to taxpayers is much lower than the cost of social supports or incarceration when we fail to help young people stay on track.


The 21st Century Civilian Conservation Corps will reinforce the principle of independence,
the now seemingly antiquated notion that no one willing to work should
be directly dependent on any other person or group for livelihood.
 
The CCC would also reduce the number of people relying on
income support, family credit, and other costly means-tested benefits.

"We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build them for the future!" ~ FDR


The belief in the beauty of this dream is to re-establish the Civilian Conservation Corps and then spread its good will for governments world wide to adopt it with the help of FDR's last initiative the UN to : "Create global peace while repairing our Biosphere!"
