Young Adult Corps
Jenine is the youngest of nine children. At the age of three, she was placed in a foster home and separated from some of her siblings. In 2011, she joined the LA Conservation Corps in hopes of gaining work experience while earning her high school diploma. Jenine graduated from the Young Adult Corps and was awarded Corpsmember of the year. Currently, she is enrolled at LA Trade Tech College. “My goal is to be a nurse so that I can provide for my son and make sure that he does not have to struggle like I did.”
In 2013, corpsmembers built the first phase of the new four-acre nature park in Compton, one of LA County’s most green-poor communities.The park is located at Washington Elementary School adjacent to the Compton Creek Trail and will be a living laboratory for community members and nature lovers. The 2nd and 3rd phases are slated to break ground in late 2014.
