Did you know…

The San Gabriel Valley Conservation Corps just east of Los Angeles, at the end of the Santa Fe Trail lies a little known jewel of the San Gabriel Valley. Established in 2003 through the vision and guidance of founder and Executive Director Daniel Oaxaca, the San Gabriel Valley Conservation Corps embodies the spirit and values of our community while providing academics, life skills, leadership and paid job training to our most underserved youth ages 16-25. Today, the Corps serves over 170 youth from Pomona to Rosemead, Azusa to the Whittier Hills and many of the surrounding communities.

On any given day one could expect to find these youth planting trees in local communities, organic farming, trail building and maintenance, low income home rehabilitation or construction, recycling bottles and cans, and leading community beautification efforts, all while also attending the YouthBuild Charter School of California and other forms of postsecondary education.

Because of the Corps consistent commitment to the youth of our communities, funders from Federal to local governments and foundations have partnered with the Corps to provide paid work experience to more than 70 of our youth each day…

however, there are more than 100 vacant job opportunities.

The San Gabriel Valley Conservation Corps’ partners have granted the opportunity to provide more than 90 more jobs for youth and 18 more jobs in leadership roles to support these youth.

Your contribution of $25, $50, or $100 will provide support for jobs and ongoing training for more San Gabriel Valley Youth
