Conservation Corps North Bay has a wide variety of educational programs to meet the diverse needs of the population we serve. Our corpsmember population covers every demographic. The goal is to empower each corpsmember to move forward to the next level of education and employability.
The students work on the Natural Resource Crews (NRC) or on the recycling crew (CRC). All the crews get vocational training Monday through Thursday. Additionally, the Field Ed Teachers and Supervisors join the crews in the field to provide field lessons that integrate field work and academics. We also hold classes after work Monday, Tuesday & Thursday.
Though corpsmembers get education on a daily basis, both in the field and in the classroom, Friday is "Education Day." During that time, corpsmembers participate in classes in a more traditional setting, with subjects ranging from academics to ESL to computers and landscaping. This part of the Marin Conservation Corps education program is open entry, and we usually do a new recruitment every 6 weeks.
The Education Department at Conservation Corps North Bay works in conjunction with John Muir Charter School.
