Environmental Training for Transition Participants
Your generous donations provide job training and college preparation for LA Conservation corpsmembers in the Transition program. The LA Corps collaborates with the LA Corps Environmental Remediation program, sponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency. Within 8 weeks, participants receive industry certified training in OSHA 30hr training, Hazardous Waste Removal, CPR/First Aid, and Work Readiness.
Through your support we can sponsor career development programs for young adults like Frank* Lopez (featured in the pictures above). He joined the LA Conservation Corps and graduated from the LA Education Corps Charter High School. After completing a year of and a half of service with the Los Angeles Conservation Corps he joined the Transition program. His career goal was to become a Heating, Ventilation and and Air Conditioning Technician. Through the Transition program he gained many technical skills, and valuable training. Enrolling in community college became a priority that will lead Frank* to graduate from a technical career in the next couple of years. However, Frank* was missing a critical skill in his career quest, a driver's license.
Frank* applied to the LA Corps Driver's Education program and was accepted to participate in a 2 week program where he received seven hours of behind the wheel training from the Lincoln Park Driving School. He completed the program and received his driver's license. He is now eligible for union apprenticeship programs in the HVAC field! Your generous support provided Frank the opportunity to receive job training, college preparation and behind the wheel driver's education training.
Thanks to your generous support, the LA Corps Transition team successfully trained and guided young adults like Frank Lopez** towards gaining living wage careers.
