The LA Conservation Corps is an environmentally focused youth development non-profit organization. By offering paid work experience on green community projects and innovative afterschool, secondary and vocational education programs, we strive to build resilience in the youth and young adults of Los Angeles and in the neighborhoods they call home.


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.

Urban Greening Programs

Last year, we planted over 4,300 trees, which are actively purifying the air and providing a cooling effect on our streets. This is particularly crucial for under-resourced communities that have historically experienced inequities in tree coverage. To address these disparities, we have adopted a comprehensive approach. This includes distributing free trees to LA residents in collaboration with LADWP and City Plants, planting 2,300 new trees in the Valley as part of the Transformative Climate Communities initiative, and cultivating the trees of the future at the Commonwealth Nursery in Griffith Park. We take immense pride in leading the movement to transform Los Angeles into a greener city for all Angelenos!
