TRANSFORMING LIVES AND LANDSCAPES SINCE 1983

Our mission is to re-engage young adults to earn a high school diploma, gain job skills, pursue college, and embark on family sustaining careers.

Since its founding in 1983 as one of the first local conservation corps in California, Civicorps has advanced the CCC’s mission to protect and enhance California’s natural resources and communities. As the only conservation corps serving the East Bay, Civicorps meets the region’s urgent need for sustainable land management while providing high quality education and workforce development opportunities for youth.
