The Civilian Conservation Corps, popularly known as CCC, was one of the most remarkable youth programs ever established. It was created during the Great Depression by President Franklin Roosevelt to put young men to work reclaiming the nation's natural resources. Over 60,000 North Carolinians worked in the program, which lasted from 1933 to 1942. Jolley describes what working in the CCC entailed.
