LA Conservation Corps

The LA Conservation Corps was “founded in 1986 by former U.S Secretary of Commerce Mickey Kantor. We have led the way in a national conservation and service corps movement that is more than 35 years old, and now encompasses more than 100 corps in every state and the District of Columbia. Present-day conservation corps are modeled on the depression–era Civilian Conservation Corps which provided meaningful environmental work to thousands of young men during one of our nation’s most difficult periods. Today, these programs exist in urban and rural communities, and employ more than 26,000 young people annually in a variety of conservation and service projects.”
