We Are the Corps
“Join the Corps! It will change the way you see the world.”
That’s the best advice Corpsmember Anthony can give to young adults out there looking for their next step. After almost two years at the Corps, not only has Anthony’s view of the world changed, but he has also changed how he views himself.

Luis works out of our site in East Los Angeles. Since joining the Corps, he’s become an expert in tree maintenance through his work maintaining trees across East LA and Boyle Heights.
Luis’ favorite place to work is the Commonwealth Nursery in Griffith Park where he helps nurture trees and native plants that will find a home in underserved communities across Los Angeles.

Watch the highlights from our last Traveling Tidepool visit of the summer!
This summer, our traveling tidepool visited our After School Program sites across Los Angeles. Corpsmembers, Derrick and Angelica, have done a fantastic job educating these LAUSD students about marine life.
This project was a collaboration of the LA Corps, Heal the Bay, and USC’s Sea Grant Program and K-12 STEM Center. Not every kid gets a chance to see the ocean or visit an aquarium. That’s why we bring the aquarium to the kids!
It’s so cool to watch the genuine joy and excitement our tidepool provides for these students!
