Our dream is to help others create opportunities for all to join in and Make More Adventures Possible.
In 2019 SECC will broaden its scope of engagement and inclusion to host its first-ever American Sign Language Inclusion (ASL) crew. Following in the footsteps of SECC’s Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) model, Deaf and Hard of Hearing teens will have the opportunity to participate in the ASL program allowing them to learn and grow through addressing critical conservation service projects in the region such as trail construction and maintenance, habitat restoration, and invasive species management.
