“SFCC gives young adults the opportunity to make their lives better and to reach their goals. I am more responsible now than I was before and, for the first time, I’m thinking about where I want to go in life.”
— Corpsmember Alum Lena Im

The San Francisco Conservation Corps builds pathways out of poverty through education, employment, and empowerment.

Our goal is to provide a solid foundation for low-income young people to build skills essential to obtain work, or succeed in pre-apprenticeship programs or post-secondary education degree attainment. 

The young people that enter our programs lack self-esteem, basic academic skills, job readiness skills, or work experience. They may have legal, housing, or substance abuse problems that make it difficult to enter and succeed in the workforce. Our model, with its strong emphasis on academic support, soft and hard skills training, case management, barrier removal and comprehensive career services, addresses the multiple challenges each young person faces and provides the individualized support necessary to accomplish their goals.
