Then and Now

Mile High Youth Corps’ Summer of Service crews are making history. We are changing the world around us. We are following in the footsteps of the great Civilian Conservation Corps, or CCC. And we’re hoping to make them proud.

The CCC was a public work relief program which employed men to do manual labor related to the conservation and development of natural resources in the 1930s and 1940s. Not only did the CCC plant literally billions of trees across the country and help to build many areas we know and love today – including the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO, one of the most beautiful outdoor music venues in the country – the CCC also helped to raise awareness and respect for the outdoors and the nation’s natural resources.

Time has passed, but we find ourselves in many of the same situations the CCC must have been in. Take a look some of photos of then (CCC) and now (MHYC).

  1. I LOVE “Then and Now” Thanks for the great photos. It would be nice to know what MHYC crews we are looking at “now!”
