Clean & Green

Created in 1988 for off track middle and high school students, Clean & Green is one of the LA Conservation Corps' oldest ongoing youth and workforce development programs. Each year, the program provides approximately 500 middle school and high school youth the opportunity to gain environmental work experience. During eight-week work sessions, crews of young people remove trash from neglected streets and alleys, remove graffiti and plant trees to beautify communities. Crew supervisors strive to cultivate a positive work ethic in the youth that trains them to be responsible and dedicated workers, as they mentor them to help them to see the value of staying in school, preparing for college and giving back to their communities.
