CORPSMEMBER SPOTLIGHT

JEREMI ROSS

Jeremi, who just graduated from college in Missouri, came to the Corps at the urging of a family friend who shared all the benefits and skills he would receive if he were to apply. Now here and interested in becoming a firefighter, Jeremi is gaining skills he feels he’ll need in that important role. Skills such as working in different communities with different people, and learning to accept the fact that every day is something different. Currently, Jeremi is working on the Alvarado and Pico-Union concrete cut projects. He said he likes being at the Corps because it helps people like him realize that the community actually does care about the work that is being done. The feeling of being involved in a program that does a lot for the Los Angeles community and staff is a game changer for Jeremi.

Help us change young lives!

PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

RIVERSIDE DRIVE MEDIAN PROJECT

In late September, our Corpsmembers completed work on the new “green” Riverside Drive median. Over the course of seven months, our crews removed layers upon layers of asphalt and concrete, and planted drought-resistant plants and trees that have beautified the Elysian Valley neighborhood. Our work on this project also helped to move us toward reducing the heat island effect that plagues our fair city. Many thanks to Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell for the opportunity to work on this project which provided our young people with work experiences that not only armed them with a new set of marketable job skills, but also instilled a sense of pride and confidence that will be with them for years to come.
