The young women and men of the Corps work hard protecting and restoring California's environment and responding to disasters, becoming stronger workers, citizens and individuals through their service.

"Hard work, low pay, miserable conditions... and more!"

John Muir Charter School at the Los Angeles CCC offers corpsmembers an educational program that makes a positive impact in the lives of our students, as well as the community.

One of the things that makes the John Muir Charter School experience beneficial for the students is the one-on-one interaction every student gets with their teacher. The students appreciate the ability to work independently, in small groups or to participate in full class direct instruction. Our students say that the teacher is down-to-earth, helpful when learning new things and willing to support them completely in their pursuit of a high school diploma. Students attend a creative writing class once a week as well as an urban gardening class with a master gardener every week. We also offer CAHSEE preparation weekly. Students will are prepared to continue their education at a local city college or trade tech if they so desire.
Students in our program earn certificates in Chain Saw/Chipper and Falling Training, Blue Card/ Defensive Driving Training, HAZWOPER, Career Development Training, Leadership Training, First Aid, CPR, First Responders, Alcohol and Other Drugs, Water Safety, Serve Safe, Trail Training, Basic Security Awareness and Flood Training.

In addition, students learn and participate in Emergency Camp Support, Money Management, Material and Equipment Safety Orientation training, Conservation Awareness Program, Sexual Harassment, Decision Making, Equal Employment Opportunity, Heat Stress, Illness and Injury Prevention, Time Management, Communicable Diseases, Anger Management/ Conflict Resolution and Violence in the Workplace.

The following courses listed above prepare them to work efficiently in their daily work schedules and further prepare them for future jobs/ careers.

Corpsmembers are also encouraged to apply for the Americorps and the CCC scholarship program where they can earn up to $7,000 yearly toward college.
