Here is some info from Wikipedia on the Civilian Conservation Corps.
The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was a public work relief program
that operated from 1933 to 1943 in the United States for unemployed,
unmarried men from relief families, ages 18–25. James McEntee was the
head of the agency. A part of the New Deal of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, it provided unskilled manual labor jobs related to the conservation and development of natural resources in rural lands owned by federal, state and local governments. The CCC
was designed to provide employment for young men in relief families who
had difficulty finding jobs during the Great Depression
while at the same time implementing a general natural resource
conservation program in every state and territory. Maximum enrollment at
any one time was 300,000; in nine years 2.5 million young men
participated in the CCC, which provided them with shelter, clothing, and
food, together with a small wage of $30 a month ($25 of which had to be
sent home to their families).
The American public made the CCC the most popular of all the New Deal programs.
Principal benefits of an individual's enrollment in the CCC included
improved physical condition, heightened morale, and increased
employability. Of their pay of $30 a month, $25 went to their parents.
Implicitly, the CCC also led to a greater public awareness and
appreciation of the outdoors and the nation's natural resources; and the
continued need for a carefully planned, comprehensive national program
for the protection and development of natural resources.
During the time of the CCC, volunteers planted nearly 3 billion trees
to help reforest America, constructed more than 800 parks nationwide
and upgraded most state parks, updated forest fire fighting methods, and
built a network of service buildings and public roadways in remote
The CCC operated separate programs for veterans and Native Americans.
Despite its popular support, the CCC was never a permanent agency. It
depended on emergency and temporary Congressional legislation for its
existence. By 1942, with the war industries booming and the draft in operation, need declined and Congress voted to close the program.
