For over 25 years, the Orange County Conservation Corps has served young, at-risk adults through employment, training and educational programs that build self-sufficiency and benefit the community through conservation-related projects.
The OCCC’s approach to employability teaches teamwork and cooperation by utilizing work projects that are beneficial to the community and the environment by creating an atmosphere where corps members have the chance to develop on an educational, professional and personal level.
