The Kennedy Conservation Corps, often referred to as Crew around campus, teaches students perseverance and grit. Students who join the crew have the opportunity to work year round in all kinds of weather. This program teaches students about natural resources through forestry, botany, and basic work skills such as filling out time cards and meeting job expectations. Before joining Crew, students have to go through an application and interview process. Once students are hired, they will have the opportunity to earn course credit, gain work experience, and receive a paycheck.
