Conservation Corps of Lobg Beach
CCLB’s mission is to raise self-esteem, develop basic work skills, work ethics, and education, and promote teamwork for Long Beach area-at-risk youth through a combination of work, conservation, and education programs.
The Conservation Corps of Long Beach (CCLB) is a nonprofit, certified local conservation corps, one of 12 certified local conservation corps in California. Established in 1987, the CCLB is a nonprofit charitable organization governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.
For each of the last 21 years, the CCLB has hired more than 200 at-risk youth each year from the area served by the Greater Long Beach Workforce Development Board to work on projects developed by the CCLB for local cities, county agencies, and other nonprofit agencies in the greater Long Beach area. The CCLB recruits and employs 18 - 25 year old youth and trains them to carry out job duties needed to complete a variety of CCLB projects, primarily in habitat/park restoration and recycling.
