   "So far, the experience I've had with SECC has been one of the best experiences I've had. During the second week of working as a part of the Urban Archeology Crew, we had a very progressive 5 days. The crew has become comfortable with each other very quickly, which includes embarrassing stories of everyone's childhoods as well as working very efficiently. Everyone in my crew has enjoyed themselves and made everyone else around them feel welcome." - Ashlyn Naylor - YCC 2017


"It is typically only with one’s best and closest friends in life that we can essentially go to all-out war with each other and then brush it off immediately, laughing, as if nothing ever happened.  After just 3 hitches our crew had reached this point, and now after four we are stronger and closer than ever.  The spirit and comradery built through arduous labor in harsh environments as a team is irreplaceable.  This rare and hard sought comradery is a result that, through the conservation corps, we have all been gifted, and perhaps one we were looking for."

“The SECC crew arrived with Pulaskis in hand. The professionalism and highly training field staff led the youth in numerous projects that resulted in a 25% cost reduction versus having to contract the same amount of work… all while employing local youth and instilling life-long job skills. Wow, this is hands down a fantastic new way of engaging youth in the outdoors, teaching valuable life and professional skills, while accomplishing conservation service in the Southeast.”
