Local Conservation Corps
Local Conservation Corps are not the same as the California Conservation Corps (CCC). The CCC is a government department within the California Natural Resources Agency. Local Corps and the CCC work collaboratively in many areas and share the same mission of providing job training and academic instruction for California’s at-risk youth. While local corps predominantly serve urban areas, the CCC provides additional coverage in rural areas through its residential and back country trails program.
Corpsmembers can earn a high school diploma by attending a charter high school operated by, or in partnership with, a Local Conservation Corps.
