Working with everything from jackhammers to jacaranda, Corpsmembers improve public spaces, build playgrounds, and landscape parks and gardens. Their work brings new vitality to neighborhoods, transforming neglected public spaces into valuable community resources.
Corpsmembers work closely with their supervisors, learning to use hand and power tools, plant trees and native plants, and build complex, beautiful playground structures. All while learning to complete projects on-time and within budget.
For over 30 years, Corpsmembers have acted as an environmental workforce, greening the city from Hunter’s Point to Crissy Field. We’re now expanding this work with a new green collar job advisory council that advises SFCC about the development of training programs to facilitate Corpsmembers’ acess to jobs in the emerging green economy.
