About the LA Conservation Corps

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.

The LA Conservation Corps was founded in 1986 by former U.S. Secretary of Commerce and Trade Ambassador Mickey Kantor. Our primary mission and purpose 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. Since our founding in 1986 we have become a national leader in youth and workforce development and alternative education for inner-city youth/young adults. We are currently the largest urban conservation corps in the nation with a full-time staff of over 150 employees who serve over 17,000 young people each year. This includes serving youth through the following programs:


  • 300 18- to 24-year-old Young Adult Corps corpsmembers who receive on-the-job training, paid work experience and attend our charter school site to complete their high school education

  • 1,000 14- to 17-year old corpsmembers who perform paid community beautification work in Clean & Green

  • 250 14- to 18-year-old students enrolled in our two full-time charter high school sites

  • 6,000 elementary and middle school students (ages 10 to 14) from 16 LAUSD schools who participate in after school enrichment activities and receive tutoring services in our After School Program

Through our programs and services, we seek to provide a supportive and enriching environment for at-risk youth and young adults to help them develop self-esteem, achieve their educational goals, establish and pursue life and career goals and gain the skills necessary to become self-sufficient, responsible citizens who will positively contribute to their communities and society. To date, the Corps has helped 725 young adults complete their high school education; 99 young adults earn their GED and 626 young adults earn their high school diplomas. Through the Russell Kantor Scholarship Fund and the alternative education programs the Corps has awarded more than $900,000 in privately funded scholarship to 535 past and current participants interested in pursuing higher education or vocational training.
