support services

Youth support services through our Corps-to-Career department include career and psychological counseling, life skills workshops, case management, certified trainings, and one-on-one assistance with resumes, job and college applications, job placement, and connection to resources such as SNAP enrollment, mental health services, Covered California, and Earned Income Tax Credit assistance.

We maintain strong employer partnerships to ensure Corpsmembers transition with jobs and the skills and certifications they need to succeed. On average 86% of students transition with a job and 22% transition with college enrollment.
