The San Jose Conservation Corps & Charter School is a non-profit organization that provides youth with a quality high school education and teaches valuable work and life skills that empower them to become responsible, productive, and caring citizens.
“For me, it is always great to see organizations that truly understand the youth that we’re working with, and try to live up to those expectations. When youth come to you, they are crying out for help. The Conservation Corps lives up to that. They feel like they are cared for. It’s about trust. We want to refer to organizations that do right by youth. The Conservation Corps is doing that successfully. It is great for the community.”
In my time at the SJCC, first we had the chance to finish school and get a high school diploma. Secondly who would offer you a job while at school and still work and study in the same place? Having a job while going to school is great for those that can’t continue their education because of work.
Helped me to become a better person. I not only received my high school diploma but now I am attending college.
