Student Conservation Corps & Congress (Sc3)
Premier Environmental Leadership Training for High School Students
2017 Featured Speaker — Running-Grass
“Hello, my name is Running-Grass. In the late 1980’s, I led a group of educators, cultural and community activists in creating Three Circles Center for Multicultural Environmental Education to help shift environmental education towards a broader, more authentic and inclusive, community-based approach to environmental learning.”
As a delegate to the First National People of Color Environmental Leadership Summit, Running-Grass helped launch the Environmental Justice movement onto the national stage. Since the late 1990’s he has worked on Environmental Justice issues in communities and at various levels of government including federal, state and local with a focus of identifying and addressing these issues at the grassroots level.

Sc3 is a week-long leadership training program for high school students held annually at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife’s National Conservation Training Center (NCTC) in Shepherdstown, WV — the nation’s top environmental training facility. Participants spend a week studying and discussing environmental, social, and economic interconnections to address conservation challenges affecting their generation.
While at Sc3, students design Action Plans to implement their knowledge in their schools, homes and communities. Sc3 Fellows learn a range of skills such as public speaking, teamwork, problem solving, critical thinking, inclusivity and conflict resolution.
