Since 1992, the Earth Conservation Corps has provided youth development and environmental education and service programs. Our mission is to empower our endangered youth to reclaim the Anacostia River, their communities and their lives.

The AmeriCorps ESCEL program will include community service, education, job training, and leadership development.
