Urban Corps serves as a bridge to a better life for young adults ages 18-26.


We provide paid job training, support services, and a second chance to earn a high school diploma, while simultaneously offering a variety of professional services to the community which helps train and employ our Corpsmembers.


Youth gain job skills on environmental, construction, and community projects. Whether planting a tree, removing graffiti, working in the San Diego River, improving a park, or rehabilitating low-income homes, our Corpsmembers improve themselves while improving the San Diego region.
