The Urban Corps of San Diego County serves as a bridge to a better life for young adults ages 18-26.
We provide paid job training, support services and a second chance to earn a high school diploma, while simultaneously offering a variety of professional services to the San Diego community.
Our Corpsmembers gain job skills through environmental, construction, recycling and other community projects. Whether improving a park, working in the San Diego River, removing graffiti or rehabilitating low-income homes, our Corpsmembers improve themselves while improving our region.
This is what we do.
