StreamSweepers Working with AmeriCorps NCCC

For the first time in StreamSweepers history, we applied for and were accepted to receive a National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) team to help us finish our season on the Clinch River in Southwest VA. The team is comprised of ten young people, ages 18-24, from all over the country who are dedicated to making a difference in the communities in which they’re positioned.

The addition of this crew is essential this year due to setbacks related to the COVID-19 pandemic; we were unable to begin our year as early as planned, nor were we able to hire as many Sweepers. We are taking all available precautions to keep the NCCC team, our employees, and the community as safe as possible while we work to conclude our second season on the beautiful Clinch River.
