Student Conservation Association
The Student Conservation Association (SCA) was founded in 1964 as an outgrowth of the successful Student Conservation Program begun in 1957 by the National Park Service in Grand Teton and Olympic National Parks to engage young people as park volunteers. Elizabeth Cushman Titus was the first President of SCA, now considered America’s conservation corps. SCA’s mission is to build the next generation of conservation leaders and inspire lifelong stewardship of our environment and communities by engaging young people in hands-on service to the land. Today, the SCA provides college and high school-aged members with hands-on conservation opportunities in many fields in all fifty states. The SCA maintains a regional office in Seattle.
