The LA Conservation Corps is the nation’s largest urban corps and LA’s pre-eminent youth development organization. We exist because we are concerned that 1 in 5 of LA’s youth adults is both out of work and out of school and that they see no path out of poverty.
Our primary mission is to provide at-risk young adults and school-aged youth with opportunities for success through job skills training, education and work experience with an emphasis on conservation and service projects that benefit the community.
Our programs prepare these young people with life skills and work experience by employing them in conservation projects such as building parks, planting trees, refurbishing hiking trails, building community gardens, removing graffiti, recycling and educating the community in how to protect the ocean and the LA River. We also provide them with a high school education in our affiliated charter school. Our ultimate goal is to prepare LA’s at-risk youth for post-secondary education, living wage jobs and to inspire them to change themselves, their communities and the world!
