How successful do you believe this program was at relieving the economic crisis?

i believe that it was successful because i feel like it gave people hope that things would get better after what happen with the Great Depression. It was also successful because a lot of what they built we still use today.

How does this program add to your understanding of the Great Depression?

It helps me understand that there was programs trying to help for what happen with the Great Depression.One of the problems the Great Depression caused was loosing of jobs but CCC helped a lot with that problem by giving men work. CCC was one of the most successful program there was.

It no longer exists but it did exist for 10 years or fewer. Between !933 and !941, more than 3,000,000 men served in CCC.
