Chicago Conservation Corps envisions a Chicago where:

  • People in every neighborhood have clean air, clean water and open spaces full of life to work and play in. . . .
  • Every home and business is equipped with energy-saving technology, and people reuse and recycle all the resources they can. . . . and
  • Citizens take pride in their block, neighborhood and city, and work together to keep their communities healthy for themselves and for future generations.

The mission of the Chicago Conservation Corps is to recruit, train and support a network of volunteers who work together to improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods through environmental service projects that protect our water, clean our air, restore our land and save energy.

C3 is an initiative of the Chicago Department of Environment, which - in collaboration with Partner organizations - supports C3 Leaders by providing training, technical assistance and resources.


  • Promote understanding of how to improve the environment in Chicago.
  • Train volunteers to be environmental leaders in their communities.
  • Boost community-based environmental efforts with technical support, materials, and people.
