To develop youth and conserve natural resources for a resilient, sustainable, and equitable community.
Our classrooms are small and effective. Students receive individualized education that is specifically designed for them to reach their academic goals. We provide rigorous instruction and align coursework with students’ college and career interests. Our students are given the opportunity to fill-in the gaps in their academic histories while receiving comprehensive instruction in all core subject areas. We give students the opportunity to reconnect with education, discover their passions and interests, and to become life-long learners.
Conservation Corps North Bay provides vocational programs in Natural Resources and Community Recycling. CCNB’s Natural Resources crews build and maintain trails, restore habitats, clear fire breaks, prevent floods, and inspire the next generation of land managers. Through an intensive program that emphasizes safety, quality, and professionalism, corpsmembers undergo skills-focused instruction in forestry, carpentry, landscaping, chainsaw use, and power and hand tool operation. CCNB’s Zero Waste Program collects recyclables and provides recycling education and outreach. Corpsmembers receive training to operate forklifts and other large equipment in accordance with safety standards. Corpsmembers interact with community members at events and through direct outreach campaigns focused on the proper recycling of e-waste, tires, mattresses, carpet, and used oil. CCNB’s vocational training programs help youth identify their career interests and goals, with Career Coaches creating individualized CCNB program plans for each corpsmember that include all the vocational training, job certifications, job readiness, academic credentials, and other life skills and support structures needed for them to reach their career goals.
