21st Century Conservation Service Corps
AEO was the first company to provide a multi-year grant to the U.S. Department of the Interior’s 21st Century Conservation Service Corps (21CSC), a national initiative that engages 25,000 disadvantaged youth and veterans annually to protect, restore, and enhance America’s great outdoors. In 2014, we announced a $1 million commitment over four years to 21CSC. In partnership with American Express, The Coca-Cola Foundation, and others, AEO has funded more than 100 conservation projects across the country. Through the projects, youth and veterans participate in habitat restoration, recreation improvements, clean-ups, and other conservation- related activities to benefit our national parks and other public lands.
