What Our Alumni Are Saying:
Amelia Uytingco, Youth Jobs Corps Alum ‘23
“During my Youth Job Corps service, I worked with local elementary school districts to address learning recovery needs in K-8th grade students affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The challenges that come with accommodating every student’s educational needs helped me specify my professional goals in pursuing a career that will help me make education more equitable in an increasingly digital world.”
Saira Ramirez-Mingueta, California Climate Action Corps Alum ‘23
“[What inspires me about my service is] knowing zero waste education, community outreach, awareness in climate action, and volunteerism is essential for our future and vital to food desert communities like Riverside and Beaumont (which have a landfill in their backyard) and other communities throughout California where children don’t see enough green space in their cities, or are food insecure.”
Maddie Sit, #CaliforniansForAll College Corps Alum ’23
“For me, College Corps was my longest in-person experience related to my academic and professional interests. Working on projects for the community, learning from your team in a safe environment, and bonding with other College Corps fellows … it’s the perfect opportunity.”
