  • Dan Knapp Quote

    “This type of emergency solidifies the reasoning behind a conservation corps: it’s engagement in something worthwhile and meaningful for the young folks we serve, and there’s nothing more worthwhile than protecting their community.”

    – Dan Knapp, Executive Director, Conservation Corps of Long Beach

  • Jacob, SCC

    “We are here by choice. We are here because we want to help our community. To be able to do that, to provide food and help keep the virus from spreading – we are part of history.”

  • Disaster relief (SJCC video)

    In addition to food distribution and other emergency and essential services, San Jose Conservation Corps has built and is managing emergency shelters to support the homeless population.

  • Carlos Campero Quote

    “You have young people unloading semi-trucks of diapers, wrapping them and palletizing them to go to a non-profit helping single moms with no other way to provide for their babies – they can say, “During this pandemic, I did something important.”

    – Carlos Campero, Los Angeles Conservation Corps

    Corpsmember Support

    “Our case managers are checking in with all our corpsmembers at least twice a week, seeing if there are any needs we can fill. We do Safeway runs to pick up food and then distribute those items. We’re also offering twice a week in-person food pantries. We’re figuring out how to do distance learning and mini workshops and helping them find other jobs, get their resumes polished, get all their certificates in place.”

    – Monique Hooks, Conservation Corps North Bay
