Business Partners & Agencies

At Civicorps, we believe in the power of community partnerships. Together with our business partners and government agencies, we are creating opportunities for young conservation workers of color to become the next generation of environmental stewards, diversifying and strengthening the environmental movement and providing leadership for a more equitable Bay Area.

From Port of Oakland to CalRecycle, East Bay Regional Parks to East Bay MUD, our partners know that we have the equipment, know-how and skilled workforce ready to support conservation, recycling and community service projects.

Business Partners


We are grateful for the support of our large, and growing, community of funders. Together with revenue from our business contracts, the funding support we receive from corporations, institutional funders and individual donors ensures that we can pay our Corpsmembers a living wage while providing them with a great education, workforce training certifications and opportunities, and the many resources young adults need and deserve to move their lives forward and contribute to their communities.

Learn more about our corporate and institutional funders here.

  • As Civicorps continues to change the lives of the youths in Oakland, they have also established strong supporters in the community — one of which is Beneficial State Bank. Whether that is through providing loans or lines of credit or even some of our staff participating as volunteers, we enthusiastically support Civicorps in realizing the potential of every young adult and disrupting the cycle of poverty and inequality.

  • The partnership with Civicorps and Tech Exchange is an example of how two nonprofits can work together to address climate goals and workforce development. Civicorps Recycling recycles our IT assets from East Bay industries. And by hosting two Civicorps interns, we equip them with IT skills. We look forward to continuing this exciting and ongoing partnership!

  • The support system, from both Civicorps and my relationship with the staff in the City of Oakland was above and beyond. Once I joined the City, I would meet these two supervisors from both [Civicorps and the City] on a monthly basis to identify my strengths and areas where I can continue to develop.
