Civilian Conservation Corps Junior Staff

One of the unique and most successful features of the Civilian Conservation Corps is the employment of successful graduates as Junior Team Commanders (JTCs) and Assistant Team Commanders (ATCs).

These graduates are specifically selected to work within the CCC because they exhibit skills, knowledge, attitudes and values that are a motivation and inspiration not only to trainees, but to young people as a whole.

Other Details
