In March of 1933, the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was established as part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal
legislation. The creation of the CCC provided jobs to unemployed men between the ages of 18 and 25 to address the high rate
of unemployment that took place during the Great Depression.
