Our Mission

“To develop youth and conserve natural resources for a strong, sustainable community.”

 We achieve our mission by

  • Providing a diverse group of young adults with opportunities to transform their lives through paid work, education, employability, civic engagement, and leadership.
  • Caring for our environment by conserving and restoring natural resources, and by improving recreational and public areas.
  • Creating the environmental leaders of the future by teaching environmental ethics and behaviors to local youth.
  • Making communities safer by reducing hazards and by responding to public emergencies and disasters.

Conservation Corps North Bay is the oldest local nonprofit youth conservation corps in the country. Serving Marin and Sonoma Counties since 1982, CCNB has helped more than 12,000 young people break the cycle of poverty through education and job skills, while serving the environment and community.

Our Values


CCNB recognizes the potential of all people and advocates for those working to define their individual paths in a society that is structured on power and privilege.


CCNB surrounds corpsmembers with support so they can build positive relationships and play active roles in improving the communities where they live, work, and serve.


CCNB fosters environmental stewards who will contribute to the creation of an ecologically sound, socially just society.
