This episode is Part I of a two-part series featuring kids working for the Youth Conservation Corps.  Host Nan Franzblau talks with kids from the YCC Mural and Garden Crews, who describe the projects they’re working on, how these projects impact the community, and what they have learned, not only from the manual work but through working in groups and leading others.

Be sure to tune in to Part II next month as well, when we’ll feature YCC members from Trails, Water Harvesting, and Eco-monitoring crews.
