CORPSMEMBER SPOTLIGHT

BRITNAE JUNIOR

Before coming to the Corps, Britnae was not really living. Life for her was unstable – she wasn’t in school, she was moving from house to house, and generally felt like she was lost and lacking a sense of purpose. It was through her internship at the Koreatown Youth Community Center where she was doing energy conservation and tree planting that she discovered a passion for outdoor experiences. At the urging of her colleagues, Britnae applied to join the Corps. Since coming to us, she has learned several valuable new skills and has worked on recycling and fuel reduction projects. More importantly, through her work experiences, she realized she truly wants to pursue a career in the outdoors and loves being able to make a difference. Britnae now feels she has found her life’s purpose and can’t wait for all that is on the horizon.

Help us change young lives!

PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

ANGELES NATIONAL FOREST POST-FIRE RESTORATION

In collaboration with the U.S. Forest Service, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, America Conservation Corps and the Conservation Corps of Long Beach, the Corps is conducting post-fire restoration activities in areas of the Angeles National Forest impacted from the Copper, Ranch and Sayre fires. With our other partners in the collaborative, our crews are doing vertical mulching, restoring trails, doing micro trash removal, creating fencing and no-dig barriers to prevent illegal off-highway vehicles from damaging the landscape and causing erosion. Corpsmembers are benefiting greatly from this project. Career-minded youth are learning valuable leadership skills, receiving training on the use of chainsaws, power drills and various hand tools, as well as other marketable job skills that will support them in paving a pathway to a career.
