Marin & Sonoma County
The Marin Employment Connection, Conservation Corps North Bay, Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, California State Parks and the Marin County Board of Supervisors are partnering to launch the Marin Youth Ecology Corps this summer. The program will employ 16 at-risk Marin County youth between the ages of 16-24 to complete daily paid conservation work at either the Indian Valley Organic Farm & Garden or Mt. Tamalpais State Park for a total of eight weeks. Based on the highly successful Sonoma County Youth Ecology Corps program, the Marin Youth Ecology Corps program will empower local youth with job readiness skills in a fun and stimulating atmosphere. Participants will also receive weekly instruction on current environmental issues and career exploration. Conservation Corps North Bay is now accepting interest forms for its summer employment programs.

With the youth unemployment rate in the United States is at its highest since World War II, only 1 in 4 youth held a job last year. Today young adults experience fierce competition from older workers for entry-level jobs while they lack the skills needed for any higher level jobs available. For thirty years now, Conservation Corps North Bay has provided thousands of youth with the job training and education needed to gain a competitive edge in the job market.
Learn first-hand about our unique model and how we’re helping youth to turn their lives around at this informative and inspiring presentation by Conservation Corps North Bay. You’ll have the opportunity to witness our education program in action and to meet some of our corpsmembers. RSVP at 707-303-3069 or 415-454-445 ext. 276.
