Programs

The Los Angeles Conservation Corps was founded in 1986 and has grown into the largest urban conservation corps in the nation with a full-time staff of over 150 employees serving over 17,000 young people each year. Conservation Work Programs: Young Adult Corps-a youth and workforce development program provides 18 to 24 year olds with alternating sessions of school and work, giving corpsmembers the opportunity to gain invaluable paid work experience while working towards their High School Diploma and their future goals. Clean & Green-a youth development program that gives 1,500 middle and high school youth the opportunity to gain environmental work experience-which includes trash and graffiti removal and tree planting projects-during school vacation periods. Education Programs: After School Program-an after school enrichment program that offers tutoring and mentoring services to 15,000 elementary and middle school students at 18 Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) schools. SEA Lab-a marine conservation and education program, operating from a hands-on science center located in the City of Redondo Beach, educates over 30,000 youth about marine life and the importance of protecting our oceans. Alternative Education Program-a year-round charter high school operates from three campuses in Pico-Union, South LA and Watts, providing academic instruction and case management services to 250 14- to 18-year-old students who had previously dropped out or been removed from their local high schools. Corpsmember Development: Transitional Living Program-a comprehensive program that provides safe, stable transitional housing to ten 18- to 21-year-old homeless corpsmembers for up to 18 months. These corpsmembers learn money management by opening a savings account and participate in life skills classes to gain the practical skills needed to live an independent and economically self-sufficient life. Support Services-includes a dedicated team of case managers and support staff who provide the critically-needed counseling and assistance to help our youth participants address the personal challenges they face and remain enrolled in our work and education programs. Scholarship Program-we offer our graduates scholarship opportunities to help them pursue post-secondary education and vocational training through three privately-funded scholarships as well as AmeriCorps Education Awards for Young Adult Corps members.
