Cesar Chavez Environmental Corps

The Cesar Chavez Environmental Corps (Chavez Corps) is FIELD's state certified local conservation corps. FIELD's certificate is a certification from the California Conservation Corps, a state agency, that allows FIELD to operate throughout the state of California. Current programs operate in Kern County, as well as throughout the Central Coast in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties, under the name of Kern Service and Conservation Program (KSACC). 

Membership in the Chavez Corps and integration with the KSACC program is open to both those in need of a high school diploma as well as high school graduates up to the age of 26. Corpsmembers selected may earn vocational and work experience credits and may also work as peer tutors in basic educational programs offered at FIELD Learning Centers. They work and train with graduate school level mentors and credentialed teachers to deliver instruction.
