LA Conservation Corps
About the organization
Our workforce development programs offer youth and young adults paid work experience on a variety of conservation projects as well as the chance to build valuable life skills and personal resilience in a supportive environment. Some of those projects include: building parks and community gardens, planting trees, refurbishing hiking trails, removing graffiti, and cleaning alleyways.
Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is embedded in our mission. We create a safe space for all individuals to bring their full identities to the spaces in which we work without judgment or harmful behavior. We hold ourselves accountable for ensuring our work prioritizes historically and currently excluded communities first. We ensure our Corpsmembers have access to a diverse collection of resources to support their needs in their personal lives and as they build their future careers, so they not only survive but thrive.
