Do you want to learn lighting and electrical technology for free and get paid to work for California Conservation Corps in Sacramento? Veterans are wanted to work for the California Conservation Corps in Sacramento. See, the CCC website. For more information on the program and how to apply, e-mail Podris at

For further information, also check out some of these other CCC websites online: Current Openings - California Conservation Corps - CA, Jobs after the Corps - California Conservation Corps - CA.go, Staff Jobs - California Conservation Corps -, Member Resources - California Conservation Corps -, and for public information, see the website of the CCC Public Info Office.

Even if you're a homeless veteran, you can request to live in the Conservation Corps dormitory. And if you have a home or room in Sacramento, you can commute to the job. It's work, it's green, and it leads to the green health of the Sacramento community.

Some CCC workers work outdoors in the fresh air at various parks. It's green because successful applicants will commute to McClellan Park in Sacramento and will also work at state Department of Motor Vehicles sites outside the area on lighting, landscaping and retrofitting projects. Keeping Sacramento clean and lighted means working as part of a green health trend for the local population.

Local-area military veterans are needed to assist with lighting and electrical work along with other projects. Veterans must be 18 to 25 years old, have earned an honorable discharge and not be on probation or parole.

Training also will be provided at Sierra College's Center for Applied Competitive Technologies in Rocklin, CA, where crew members will earn a certificate of completion in lighting and electrical technology.

Pay is $8 an hour, and basic health insurance is included. Uniforms, safety gear and tools are also provided. The crew is nonresidential, but corps dormitory housing may be available for veterans who request it. Also see the website, Veterans Discover Allure of Jobs in the Western Wilderness.
