Earth Corps



EarthCorps is creating a global community through local environmental service. The vision for EarthCorps evolved out of Peace Trees, a nonprofit that began in 1988 and continues today as Peace Trees Vietnam. Peace Trees was founded to improve US-USSR relations by bringing people from both countries together to plant trees in places including India and Costa Rica. In 1991, the focus of Peace Trees became more global- bringing people from around the world together to improve cross-cultural understanding.

Detailed Information:
Our programs focus on four main areas:

  • Environmental Restoration: We work with dozens of partner organizations to restore our environment to a natural balance and to maximize safe public access to open spaces while minimizing negative environmental impacts.
  • Training and Education: Our program participants are young adults, ages 18-24, who are seeking to gain hands-on experience in the environmental field. All of our programs involve intensive field skills training combined with classroom and field education.
  • Cross Cultural Understanding: We bring young adults from environmental non-profits (NGO's) around the world to receive conservation training, exchange ideas, and practice teamwork and leadership skills with their US peers.
  • Volunteerism and Community Involvement: Our participants serve the community for 6-12 months as part of EarthCorps. In addition, we encourage volunteerism by engaging thousands of local community volunteers on restoration projects every year.
