Greater Valley Conservation Corps (GVCC) hires youth between the ages of 18 and 26 to provide natural resource, recycling and conservation services throughout five counties.

Our purpose is to inspire, educate, and serve local youth and communities by providing opportunities to practice a strong work ethic and environmental stewardship.

GVCC is an "Earn While You Learn" program whereas our members are provided with education, industry recognized certifications, postsecondary assistance, hands-on job training, field projects, workforce development opportunities and more!

Facilities are currently open in two locations, Stockton and Sonora. Each location offers employment opportunities year-round (Members and staff included). GVCC is not a cohort style program but does offer vocational cohorts in construction and the solar industry, please contact the recruitment office for further details.

Make a difference. Join the Corps!
