    Disaster Response

    At Santa Barbara and Santa Maria food banks, people wait for hours to receive food for their families. In partnership with the National Guard, Devon and his team from Cesar Chavez Environmental Corps are there to answer the call.

    “I love walking through there and knowing all this good food is going to people who need it. We see little kids. Knowing we can help put some food in their stomach, it feels good. It’s real good.”

    -Devon Dorsey, Cesar Chavez Environmental Corps

  • Shawn Riggins Quote

    “Even in the midst of a global pandemic, the segment of society that people mostly want to throw away, are the ones out there trying to help people. Everybody’s written these young people off, yet here they are, working in this terrible environment, trying to improve the lives for people who don’t even know they’re doing it.”

  • Clarence Jones Quote

    “Since joining the corps in February 2020, in just four months, I’ve achieved my high school diploma, I have an apartment, I’m enrolled in college, and I’m working on my driver’s license. I’ve never really worked with the community before; I’ve never had the opportunity to to do something good for someone else or that someone else relies on. Now I’m part of a bigger thing; I have a purpose. This has changed my entire mindset.”

  • Keir Klingenberg Quote

    “The first day , everyone came back and was super tired. I asked them, “How’s it goin? Is it worth it?” And they said, “ Yes! It’s totally worth it.” They totally latched on to it. This is what it’s about. This is what the Conservation Corps is about. It’s about really helping, for people who really really need it.”
