The California Conservation Corps (CCC) provides young women and men the opportunity to work hard responding to fires, floods and other disasters, restoring California's environment, and installing clean energy and energy conservation measures. Through their service, the members of the CCC gain life, work, and academic skills to become strong workers and citizens.
In addition to the CCC, there are also 13 certified local conservation corps located in various communities throughout the state. These local corps perform workforce development and training activities with youth.
Since department programs drive the need for infrastructure investment, each department has a related capital outlay program to support this need.
