The CCC – Young Man’s Opportunity is a Flash-animated short created by Gregory McLeod and published by McLeodGaming. It was originally created for Gregory McLeod's American Studies class as a persuasive advertisement to convince Congress to approve the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in the 1930s.
The animation plays as a comedic advertisement for the CCC. A narrator opens by explaining how the Great Depression has tanked America's economy, leaving millions of Americans homeless and unemployed. However, the CCC is now available to give Americans a chance to make something of their lives.
President Franklin D. Roosevelt then appears to make a statement. He says that with the CCC, the government is both enhancing the value of their natural resources and appeasing a lot of distress. He then explains that it's up to the viewer to change America, otherwise a girl will cry. He concludes by urging the viewer to talk to a congressman and show their support for the CCC.
