Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) (1933)
Established on March 31, 1933, the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was an attempt to reduce the country’s massive unemployment. Authorized initially to employ 250,000 young men between the ages of eighteen and twenty-five, the CCC ultimately employed more than 2 million before Congress abolished it in 1943. These youths, who had come from urban areas, wore uniforms and lived in camps run along military lines. They undertook such tasks as reforestation, soil conservation, and general improvements in the nation’s parks and could also enroll in educational courses. Most of their small monthly wages was sent home to their families.
Suggestions for Term Papers
1. Discuss the origins of the CCC.
2. Discuss how various participants viewed their experience in the program.
