"The most challenging job you will ever love."

John Muir Charter School at the Siskiyou CCC offers corpsmembers an educational program that makes a positive impact in the lives of our students, as well as the community.
Every student is an individual, and for this reason every student that progresses through John Muir Charter School in Siskiyou County has a tailored plan that meets their individual needs and career goals. For example, some students plan to take full advantage of all of the opportunities the CCC has to offer and therefore elect to gain credit while they complete Super Grade requirements. Other students have higher education goals and for this reason we assist them with preparing for entrance exams and filling out financial aid materials. Still other students are seeking to gain job skills for a specific career pathway and so we seek to arrange internships allowing students to learn more about their areas of interest. The support team at the Siskiyou Satellite has decades of experience in developing career pathways and is strongly dedicated to the progress of each and every student in gaining the education they need to succeed.
The vocational training students can gain while working with the California Conservation Corps is wide and varied. While working with Crew 70, students learn the importance of basic job skills such as showing up for work prepared, working as a team and how to utilize chain of command. Students also learn many hands on skills related to fire prevention, flood control, hazardous material removal as well as drivers training, to name a few. Additional opportunities students can take advantage of include applying to specialty programs such as Backcountry Trails and international work and travel programs. There is also the opportunity to transfer to Conservation Corps sites throughout California. Students gain well-respected skills while working with the California Conservation Corps and become useful employees to employers like including the National Forest Service, Fish and Wildlife, Cal Trans and many others. There is no better career building program available for young people willing to work in our county.
