While the LA Conservation Corps is best known for its environmental and conservation work and service projects, our education programs are another important component of the services we offer to Los Angeles youth and young adults.
Alternative Education Program
Youth and young adults who were unsuccessful in a traditional high school have the opportunity to reclaim their academic futures and earn a high school diploma.
We partner with the Los Angeles Education Corps, an independent charter school authorized by the Nevada County (CA) Office of Education, to offer a high school diploma program accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
Young Adult Corps High School
Youth Opportunities High School
After School Program
The After School Program provides academic enrichment, tutoring and mentoring services at Los Angeles Unified School District elementary and middle schools.
Young Adult Corps High School caters to the 18- to 24-year-old youth enrolled in the Young Adult Corps who come to us for a second chance at a high school diploma and applicable work experience that will make them competitive for living wage jobs. This site fulfills the Young Adult Corps’ school/work model by offering seven-week blocks of high school classes that are separated by alternating blocks of paid on-the-job training on work projects.
Academic instruction at Young Adult Corps High School involves small classes of 15-20 students who study the required core subjects needed to pass the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) including mathematics, English (reading and writing), science, history, computer technology and a number of elective courses (e.g., economics, speech, government or foreign language).
