Status:   Incorporated Not for Profit & Registered Charity

Mandate: Conservation Corps Newfoundland and Labrador is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to provide youth with training and employment in environmental/cultural heritage conservation.

Goals: To work with communities/partners to enhance, restore and sustainably develop the natural and cultural resources of the province. To help young people gain leadership, teamwork and employment skills. To develop and promote a strong conservation ethic in Newfoundland and Labrador.

CCNL was created in 1992 by the Economic Recovery Commission to increase quality employment, training and career-development opportunities for youth and community partners within the province in the areas of environmental/cultural enhancement. CCNL was incorporated in 1993 as a not-for-profit agency governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and is a provincial community based organization that works to facilitate a strong environmental ethic and create partnerships and capacity in communities across the province to address environmental and cultural issues.

Focusing on environmental and cultural projects and resources has allowed CCNL to provide strong employment training as well as a stronger connection for young people to their communities, encouraging youth to be more active in the development and conservation of the local environment and cultural resources. The basis of CCNL programs has been partnerships with community based organizations and focusing its efforts on reaching rural and remote communities. CCNL have used direct employment programs, such as the Internship and Green Team Programs, and general public education and outreach initiatives to educate a wide audience on environmental issues.

In 2002, the Climate Change Education Centre (CCEC) was added, reaching out to thousands of young people in schools and youth organizations across the province educating on local impacts of climate change and encouraging youth to take to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions each day.
