Townsend Public Affairs is proud to highlight a new client, the Orange County Conservation Corp (OCCC). The OCCC is a non-profit institution that serves young, at-risk adults through workforce development, training and educational initiatives that build self-sufficiency and benefit the community through conservation-related projects. The OCCC recently expanded its reach by opening a charter school in Fullerton, providing Corps Members with an opportunity to obtain a GED and continue on whether it be vocational training or higher education.
The OCCC is affiliated with the broader California Association of Local Conservation Corps, The Corps Network (formally NASCC), and other youth service organizations. Funding is provided through the California Department of Conservation as well as individual and corporate contributions, grants, contracts and entrepreneurial projects.
We are excited to work with the OCCC to seek funding for its programs and priorities and broaden the public awareness of its efforts. To learn more, you can visit their website, http://www.occcorps.org/
