“I didn’t have a job. I was running the streets. SFCC changed my life.”

— Jamal Johnson, SFCC Corpsmember

The San Francisco Conservation Corps offers young people opportunities to develop themselves, their academic abilities and marketable job skills while addressing community needs through service work.


Since 1983, over 5,000 young people have taken the challenge to become Corpsmembers, working 5 million hours on hundreds of landscaping, conservation, recycling, and playground renovation projects to enhance the environment and communities of San Francisco. Throughout this work, thousands of Corpsmembers have gained academic, environmental and work skills.
