CORPSMEMBER SPOTLIGHT

Chanzel Jackson

Clean & Green

Chanzel moved to Arizona at a young age to live with her father. Living with an alcoholic dad and being separated from her mother was not easy.  She was the mother figure to her younger sister. After seven years she returned to Los Angeles to live with her mother. After seeing an LA Corps poster, Chanzel decided to apply for a Clean & Green job. “The LA Conservation Corps helped me realize that everyone has an opportunity to do something in life and everyone has the right to be happy.” Chanzel wants to be a veterinarian because she has a passion for animals and enjoys math and science.

The 2nd and 3rd phases are slated to break ground in late 2014.
