All we need is an opportunity, some encouragement
and someone who believes in us.

– Ty'ari Hunter, Corpsmember speaker at the 2019 Spring Luncheon

We can't believe it has been almost two months since our 2019 Spring Luncheon Celebration. So many great things have been happening at the Corps! As we jump into summer, we would like to thank you again for believing in Corpsmembers like Ty'ari. 

Your support makes a difference in the life of every Corpsmember. You give them the confidence to create positive change in their communities. You give them their #LACorpsPower.

This month, LA Corpsmembers joined their colleagues around the nation in celebrating Great Outdoors Month with The Corps Network and shared why they choose to serve outdoors and give back. Below are two of our favorite responses we think you'll enjoy.

In addition, long-time Board member and Luncheon co-chair, Teresa Cisneros Burton of Focusing Philanthropy, was elected to the position of President & Chair of the Board. The Board and senior staff give a special thank you to Past Chair Bryan LeRoy of Nixon Peabody for his outstanding leadership and dedication to the Corps over the past year.
Corpsmember Valeria Pelayo (above) has arrived in Vermont loaded down with all of the amazing gear provided to her by you and the generous folks at REI. She is the first of three Corpsmembers participating in an exciting new exchange program with the Vermont Youth Conservation Corps! She will be joined by Corpsmembers Hector Martin (pictured left) and Angel Mandillon next month. They will be helping to build parks, construct trails and restore forest habitats in a very different environment. Thank you to everyone who helped prepare her for this exciting journey. There is still time to gear up Hector and Angel for their trip!
