Peers Resource was fortunate enough to have Interface provide a 3-day series of workshop on Teen Dating Violence. Along with these sessions, Peers has kicked off their Random Acts of Kindness campaign.
The Leos have been spending time getting ready for their upcoming events. This planning included a visit to the Camarillo Art Center to learn more about recycled art, and how they could assist.
California Conservation Corps
This week many Frontier Rockets attended a presentation led by Xochitl Coronado of the California Conservation Corps. Students learned about the history of the CCC, it’s establishment and evolution, and heard first hand stories of growth and experience through the Corps. The California Conservation Corps was developed as a youth program that would foster a relationship between the young people of California and the beautiful environment that surrounds them. Corps members devote a year to public service by improving and protecting California’s parks, wilderness areas and communities. The CCC provides paid training in trail building and restoration, park development, fire and emergency response, the culinary arts, and invaluable experiences in personal development and leadership. Some other benefits provided by the CCC is fire training certificates, medical insurance, scholarships, housing/meals, and career connections with organizations such as Cal Fire, Cal Trans, National Park Service, California Department of Water Resources, and more. Students who are interested in learning more about the CCC can contact Ms. Coronado at the Region II Camarillo Center. Many thanks to Ms. Julie Varde for organizing such a valuable experience for our Rockets!
