The San Gabriel Valley Conservation Corps ‘Corps-to-Jobs’ division was created to assist youth, 16 and 17 year olds, that have had been through the Juvenile Justice System. SGVCC feels strongly that everyone deserves a second chance in life, no matter what the situation is or has been.

Based on the intake and assessment, together, we determine the needs of youth and define the Individual Success Plan. Together, we define the vocational direction, educational plan, and intensively begin to working towards job training, job placement and education.

Our Corps-to-Jobs program keeps youth on track with their educational goals providing recruitment, case management, job training and job placement services to youth. This program ensures that youth stay on course with their vocational and educational goals during their stay at SGVCC and after graduation. This specific curriculum assists youth in receiving vocational job training, job readiness, life skills mentoring and self-esteem training. Youth learns how to complete resumes, cover letters, application forms, conduct mock interviews with peers and private sector employees, personal hygiene, stress management, conflict resolution, punctuality, reliability, cultural awareness, appropriate behavior and interpersonal relationships. Classes are provided at their respective enrolled school site to achieve their educational goals.

An intake and assessment is established to evaluate the needs and to define the individual’s direction for a successful plan toward job placement and education.

Some of the services that are offered to youth are:

  1. Job Training and Education
  2. Life Skills Training
  3. Self-Esteem Training and Mentoring
  4. Crime and Violence Prevention
  5. Job Readiness
  6. Job Placement
