Seniors

Attention Seniors!

The CCC provides paid opportunities for youth to serve their state protecting and restoring California’s environment, responding to disasters, and becoming stronger citizens, students and individuals through full-time job training. It's a chance for individuals to explore projects with different agencies during their year in the Corps and perhaps find something of interest. Corpsmembers are young men and women 18-25 years of age from all walks of life who sign up for a challenging year of service to California’s natural resources and communities. It is also a chance to earn scholarship money ($2,000 up to $14,200 ) to use in academic or vocational schools after the CCC.
