Since our program generally only allows corpsmembers to stay at the Corps for up to two years, we offer a Transition program during their last few months with us to better prepare them for employment or post-secondary education.
At the LA Conservation Corps, we know that preparation is the key to success. This is why we have a dedicated team of staff to support corpsmembers in a variety of services related to post secondary education. We support our corpsmembers in the following ways:
Corpsmembers receive basic vocational training in OSHA 10 and CPR & First Aid to give them a baseline of training as they begin their work experience and career pathway exposure as new corpsmembers. During the course of their time in the Young Adult Corps, they can participate in a variety of trainings including forklift driving, HAZMAT, and driver’s license training. Written exam classes are offered to all corpsmembers and those who need help with behind-the-wheel lessons are eligible to apply for FREE lessons year round.
Each corpsmember receives intensive workforce development training and develops a professional portfolio which includes a resume, application, and two competency tests in math and customer service. Each participant also undergoes a mock interview with a working professional. Upon completion, corpsmembers qualify for employment opportunities and receive a certificate of completion.
