Grantee Spotlight 🌟 Youth Conservation Corps!

LCCF is proud to support the work of YCC, who empowers and mentors young adults to succeed through education, life skills training, career pathways, and environmental stewardship.

Impact story:
At the age of 17, Jonnatan was headed down the wrong path. Eventually, he dropped out of high school and was kicked out of
his parent's house. He was unhappy and felt isolated living on his own. Jonnatan realized this wasn’t how he wanted to live his life.

When he heard from a friend that at YCC he could earn his high school equivalency, receive an NCCER construction certification, and get paid to do so, he didn’t hesitate to apply.

During his time at YCC, Jonnatan worked extremely hard and during the height of the pandemic, he was able to attain his high school equivalency, receive support through on-site counseling and life skills which he attributes to helping him become a better, more compassionate person. Jonnatan received practical on-site construction training and quickly became a student leader, assisting and teaching fellow construction classmates.

Since graduating from YCC, he’s started his own business doing remodeling, drywall taping, and painting. His dream for the future is to scale up his operations to start doing bigger jobs and be
able to help fellow YCC graduates achieve their financial goals by joining his team. Jonnatan has also reconnected with his family and their relationship together is β€œbetter than ever."

Thank you, Youth Conservation Corps, for all of the great work you are doing in our community in Lake County!
