Mission

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.

 CCC MOTTO:

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

John Muir Charter School at the Ukiah CCC offers corpsmembers an educational program that makes a positive impact in the lives of our students, as well as the community.
At the Ukiah Center we endeavor to build and challenge our students' pursuits in the academic world. The tone in our classroom is one of encouragement. We have a passion for learning and helping every student to realize the rewarding results that come from rigorous effort. Our students often comment that they appreciate the individualized teaching and we often hear, "We feel like you are there for us." Ultimately, achievement brings success. Success builds self-esteem and self-esteem opens the door for opportunity. Malala Yousfzai said, "One child, one teacher, one book can change the world." At the Ukiah CCC Center we have witnessed this truth, many times.
 
The California Conservation Corps and John Muir Charter School have teamed up to make Einstein's quote true - "I never teach my pupils, I only attempt to provide conditions in which they can learn." The Ukiah Center offers a program that develops the whole individual. Students' work centers around salmon restoration, trail building, eradication of invasive species, CALTRANS, construction, firefighting and emergency response. With these projects, they are trained to use hand tools and chainsaws, take proper safety measures and how to care for and keep their tools. As teachers, we visit the work sites and talk about the variety of natural species in the work location, the water sources, demonstrate the physical science involved with a grip hoist and show the value of a healthy stream bed. Career Pathways and Career Development prepare the corpsmember with a resume and interview techniques and education through earned scholarships. Through volunteer work and leadership opportunities, students realize a desire to lead and serve in their community. John Muir Charter School and the Ukiah CCC have prepared the conditions for a corpsmember to learn and grow.
