  • For many years, the Orange County Conservation Corps has been a hard-working, reliable recycling partner in Irvine. The success of our program is due in large part to the dedication and commitments of the OCCC.

  • The Golden Hills Community Services District (District) is benefiting directly from the efforts of the Farmworker Institute of Education and Leadership Development (FIELD), who have secured a grant in the amount of $573, 203 to restore and fence a 165-acre nature park in the Golden Hills community.  Using local restoration crews, FIELD will install preventative barriers and restore areas of the park that have been affected by illegal off-highway vehicle use.  These efforts will assist the District in maintaining open meadows and a historic lake and seasonal stream that will enhance the quality of life for the Golden Hills community and visitors.  Thank you FIELD for the partnership opportunity!

  • The Greater Valley Conservation Corps Corpsmembers and Staff have been an outstanding partner and have not only been instrumental in the joint cleanup efforts of our community but have also touched the hearts and lives of 90 Elderly, Disabled and Military Veterans who received free cleanup and junk removal during the 2019 San Joaquin County First District’s Free Dumpster Day events. 162 in total over the last 2 years have been helped who would of never been able to do it without the help of GVCC.

  • I would like to give a big compliment to the Urban Corps of San Diego County crews... Both supervisors and crews have been exceptional in performing and completing the tasks given to them and their crew supervision has been nothing but outstanding. Thank you again for providing Mission Trails Regional Park with outstanding field supervisors and crews.

  • While I was working on various details, I realized what an integral part the Local Conservation Corps has become to the City of Fresno Waste Tire events over the last two years. Your organization has consistently provided quality work crews that are capable, enthusiastic and ready to get the job done. I have been impressed by their courtesy, professionalism, motivation and the seamless incorporation of your team members with our own and I cannot imagine an Amnesty event without the help of the Local Conservation Corps. I am looking forward to many more successful Waste Tire Amnesty Day events with the Local Conservation Corps.

  • We have had great success with past Sequoia Community Corps corpsmembers and we currently have an employee on staff that has been with us 7 years that came from SCC and now is our shop manager. Others have left but have gone on to working for other contractors and have found success through the process. One of our key installers also came from the Sequoia Community Corps.
    Chris TaylorGeneral Manager, The Glass Shop Commercial
  • The Sonoma RCD was very pleased with Conservation Corps North Bay’s work on our emergency fire restoration projects. We look forward to working with them again. The land has been greatly improved by the Corps.
    Aaron FairbrookProgram Manager, Sonoma Resource Conservation District
  • At the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District, we have a lot of need for land management and land restoration work. The San Jose Conservation Corps has helped us do a lot of fuel management...so that in the event of a fire the fire doesn’t climb up to the tree and start spreading from the tops of the canopies of the trees. Our staff are always excited when they have the opportunity to work with the San Jose Conservation Corps. They really bring in a lot of energy and there’s opportunity for the young adults to learn new skills. They are our next generation stewards.
    Ana RuizGeneral Manager, Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District
  • The young people of the Conservation Corps of Long Beach are vastly improving the Lower LA River Landscape through their tireless efforts and stewardship of the River.  At the same time they are improving their own lives, the lives of their families, and their community.
    Senator Lena Gonzalez (33rd District)
  • Civicorps plays a deeply important role in the Bay Area’s conservation landscape. Their work with public agencies like EBRPD helps ensure our region’s precious open spaces, trails, and waterways remain beautiful, accessible, and environmentally sound. Through their dynamic job training program and rigorous high school diploma program, they are training the next generation of environmental stewards who will be on the forefront of protecting the Bay Area against the ravages of climate change. I am proud to advocate for Civicorps and the talented young people they serve.
    Senator Nancy Skinner
  • The work you do for San Francisco is simply wonderful...giving young people with limited opportunities the chance to learn, thrive, and gain skills needed to enter the workforce really is essential for building our new economy in this century and providing a solid foundation for young people for the workforce.
    Senator Dianne Feinstein
