California Conservation Corps is looking new members in Escondido

October 6, 2016 by  

The California Conservation Corps helps young people develop skills and confidence they can use to have a bright future, and it has put out a call looking for youth in Escondido who may be interested in taking part.

An orientation session to the program has been planned. It will supply further details about the program, which provides paid work experience as well as life and health insurance, scholarship opportunities, and more. In addition to this, it will help them obtain their high school diploma while working in emergency series and environmental conservation. Brochures can be prepared for distribution during orientation meetings such as this.

To take part in the initiative, a person needs to be a California resident between 18 and 25 years of age, not be on parole of supervised/formal probation, and pass background and fingerprint checks. They cannot have certain criminal convictions, and must be willing to participate in the conservation corps education program, work outdoors in bad weather, and take part in emergency response activities as needed.

The information session will take place on November 8 from 11:00 am until 12:30 pm at 1120 Sycamore Ave Suite 1B in Vista. There is no charge to register.

An opportunity to sign up, find out more about the program, and start the process of applying to be a corps member can be found on the California Conservation Corps Vista, CA Program Orientation Eventbrite listing.
