Welcome to Civicorps Schools. We are proud of our successes transforming the lives of young adults as they grow into active citizens in their communities.
Whether an unemployed young person who dropped out of high school looking for a second chance and job training; a client needing recycling collection or conservation corps services; or a donor or volunteer seeking an impactful, successful organization, the information is here. Civicorps invites you to learn how to become part of our community—a community that creates the conditions for success for all of its members.
CIVICORPS SCHOOLS promotes active citizenship and environmental stewardship by implementing an educational curriculum based on academic rigor, community-based learning, and the arts, combined with the mastery of real-world skills through job training and civic education programs.
Civicorps is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization located in Oakland, California and was formerly known as the East Bay Conservation Corps. We run a public charter high school that enrolls youth ages 18-24. Students in the Civicorps Academy participate in paid job training on environmental and community beautification projects. Our recycling program provides additional job training opportunities.
