The Sacramento Regional Conservation Corps (SRCC) was founded by the Metro Chamber of Commerce in 1984 to provide young adults with an opportunity to gain both education and paid work experience. Since then, they have become Sacramento's largest education and workforce development program for young adults aged 18 to 26.
SRCC’s mission is to better the lives of young adults through the integration of education, job skills training, and work experience on conservation projects and service opportunities that benefit the region and corpsmembers. For work projects, the SRCC receives funding from state and local government agencies, foundations, corporate grants, sponsorships, and private donations. Projects consist of public beautification, vegetation management, trail construction, habitat restoration, and tree trimming and members can gain industry-recognized certifications like Forklift, OSHA 10, CPR/First Aid and more. Corpsmembers are involved in a variety of work training opportunities provided by local governments and private businesses.
There is no prior experience or even a high school diploma required to join the SRCC, and corpsmembers who complete the program are significantly more employable, can earn their high school diploma on-site, and have learned the value of resource conservation while giving back to the community! SRCC is hiring young adults from ages 18-26. To apply, please call 916-693-3992.
