The California Conservation Corps (CCC) provides young women and men the opportunity to work hard responding to fires, floods and other disasters, restoring California's environment, and installing clean energy and energy conservation measures at public facilities throughout the state. Through their service, the members of the CCC gain life, work, and academic skills to become strong workers and citizens.
In addition to the CCC, there are also 14 local conservation corps located in metropolitan communities throughout the state that are annually certified by the California Conservation Corps, and engage young people in conservation, recycling, education, and training activities.
Since department programs drive the need for infrastructure investment, each department has a related capital outlay program to support this need. For the specifics on the CCC's Capital Outlay Program, see "Infrastructure Overview."
