Southeast Conservation Corps (SECC), formerly known as Southeast Youth Corps, operates conservation service programs throughout the Southeast that focus on empowering young people to cultivate compassion, responsibility and grit through community service, hard work and environmental stewardship.
Building upon the foundation of the Civilian Conservation Corps, SECC is focused on connecting local youth to the natural environment through service learning, personal development and recreation. SECC offers a variety of opportunities, including both an adult conservation crews and youth conservation crews, youth mountain biking program, and Trips for Kids--Chattanooga.
The SECC office is located in Chattanooga, TN, nestled between the Cumberland Plateau and the Appalachian Mountains. This ideal location allows the Southeast Conservation Corps to engage a diverse population of young adults in broad range of conservation service projects and recreation opportunities within some of the oldest and most biologically diverse forests in the eastern United States.
