In 2013, the Maryland Multicultural Youth Centers (MMYC), partnered with the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to provide services to out-of-school youth through the Montgomery County Conservation Corps (MCCC). MCCC uses a comprehensive approach to working with youth 17-24 years of age. Participants are provided with opportunities to earn their GED and gain hands-on experience while completing projects in regional parks designed around conservation principles.
