California Exchange Program

Are you over 18 and looking for an adventure of a lifetime?
Then join us for a month long trip to California.

The California Conservation Corps (CCC) has been exchanging with Conservation Volunteers Australia for over 28 years.  This program offers you the opportunity to volunteer alongside the world’s oldest conservation corps on a range of practical projects that take place in urban, regional or remote areas.

Previous exchange program volunteers have experienced activities such as; restoring historical buildings in Santa Barbara, planting trees on a beach in Malibu and trail maintenance and salmon habitat restoration in Yosemite National Park.

This is a trip of a lifetime—a chance to explore California whilst volunteering with dynamic and experienced Corps members.
