    Conservation Corps Youth Enterprise

    San Gabriel Valley Conservation Corps will utilize the $75,000 LA 2050 grant funds to support youth economic advancement through paid training and employment. Our youth work improves park access, trail health, habitat restoration and tends urban farms in San Gabriel Valley. Our youth-driven social enterprise project will expand our work providing paid employment and training for underserved and marginalized youth, particularly system-involved youth. We have several social enterprise efforts currently including an urban farm of 6 acres.
