Member Opportunities and Resources
The CCC program provides corpsmembers with opportunities and resources that complement the Corps work experience. These services and resources meet the health, social and educational needs of corpsmembers. Career transitional opportunities help corpsmembers define and follow individual career plans, including related internship and work experiences, during and after the CCC.
The California Conservation Corps provides corpsmembers with a variety of valuable support services and programs. Services at CCC centers include personal, drug/alcohol and health counseling. Leadership opportunities are created through Corpsmember Advisory Boards. CCC project work experience is enhanced by related internship possibilities, high school classes, and college classes.
Corpsmembers have many opportunities to link their CCC experience to future education and employment. All corpsmembers participate in required career development classes which include self assessment, career goal-setting and planning, career research and job-seeking skills. Corpsmembers learn work readiness and job retention skills through the work program and monthly evaluations. Corpsmembers may be qualified for post-CCC internships and job opportunities that give credit for the CCC experience. Volunteer opportunities are part of the CCC program and encouraged beyond CCC graduation.
