CorpsTHAT -Conservation Corps Program Engagement
The goal of this project is to develop a successful conservation corps program that focuses on environmental education and job training for Maryland Deaf and Hard of Hearing youth. Through this program, youth will gain hands-on learning experiences, job skills and leadership development that will lead them to conservation-related careers upon program completion. The majority of the youth and young adults in this program are from low socio-economic backgrounds, have never had a job before or are at risk for being out of work for extended periods
