We are proud to support Government Education Day for our corpsmembers!
Every spring, CALCC sponsors a Government Education Day in Sacramento, CA.
On this day, all 14 local corps send a team of corpsmembers and leaders to the state capitol to learn about state government, meet with legislators and be the voice of their communities.
The purpose of this event is threefold: Youth from across the state get to meet each other, make personal connections and learn about opportunities in other regions. For many corpsmembers, this is their first plane trip, their first visit to Sacramento, and their first opportunity to speak to policy makers and state leaders, all of which build confidence and self-efficacy. And there’s no better way for legislators to learn about the local corps mission than to hear from those most directly impacted: the youth themselves.
CALCC organizes a series of meetings with partners, like CalRecycle, and legislators who represent local corps districts. CALCC also hosts an awards reception to honor Corps Champions, leaders whose efforts have moved the local corps mission forward in California.
