The Los Angeles Conservation Corps Clean and Green Youth Program is coordinating various street maintenance efforts and services throughout Council District 4 with youth from the area, cleaning and improving the same area in which they live. These youth earn a paycheck while developing fundamental workplace skills and a sense of community.
Each year, the program provides approximately 500 middle school and high school youth the opportunity to gain environmental work experience. During eight-week work sessions, crews of young people remove trash from neglected streets and alleys, remove graffiti and plant trees to beautify communities. In addition to this work, the
LA Conservation Corps has partnered with the Bureau of Sanitation in order to be proactive about the state of some of the alleyways within Los Angeles.
LA Conservation Corps and its crews, regularly remove overgrown vegetation, garbage, and bulky items that are often dumped within these alleys. Crew supervisors strive to cultivate a positive work ethic in the youth that trains them to be responsible and dedicated workers, as they mentor them to help them to see the value of staying in school, preparing for college, and giving back to their communities.
That’s why we’ve teamed up with the LA Conservation Corps to beautify neighborhoods in Council District 4. Please fill out the form below to let us know of a street in your neighborhood that needs cleaning or improving. We will make sure to send a team out as soon as we can.
