Montgomery County Conservation Corps (MCCC) is an education and workforce development program that allows youth ages 17 – 24 the opportunity to explore conservation related careers and gain job-ready skills through hands-on work experience in the “green” sector while completing their GED.  Academic support is needed in the areas of math and language arts. In particular, the team seeks tutors that are knowledgeable in subjects needed to complete the GED.  This is an opportunity for direct youth one-on-one or small-group engagement via tutoring, and limited mentoring. The ideal volunteer will be open to working with youth from all backgrounds and will approach tutoring with a focus on youth development.
