CORPSMEMBER SPOTLIGHT

JOSE ALAS

Jose was initially drawn to the Corps because he longed to finally earn his high school diploma. Once joining us, he discovered a myriad of opportunities at his fingertips that will help him reach his full potential. Reflecting on his time here, he said, “Being at the Corps keeps me on the right track while also helping me escape the every day struggles I face in my life.” While Jose is happy to have support keeping him on the right track, he is excited about all that he’s learning here, too! He is learning everything there is to know about working with concrete from start to finish. He’s also received training on how to handle heavy machinery like compactors, skid steers, mini axes, and skip loaders. Though Jose feels his life is still a work in progress, he says that being at the Corps has had a major impact on the vision and the expectations he had for his life. Things are clearer than he ever thought they would be, and he’s staying off the streets and away from the negative influences in his life. We are proud of you, Jose. Keep up the good work!

PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

RAINWATER CATCHMENT SYSTEM INSTALLATION PROJECT

In an effort to increase water conservation in the underserved neighborhoods of the Northeast San Fernando Valley, the LA Conservation Corps partnered with Council District 7, the City of Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Beautification Team to install 50 rainwater catchment systems at single-family homes. Our Corpsmembers not only received valuable work experience and learned important job skills that will put them on the path to success, but they also had an opportunity to sharpen their customer service skills by engaging with the public to educate them on the benefits of the rain barrels and how to use them properly.
