As one of the most culturally diverse cities in the nation, Los Angeles is an unrivaled treasure trove of creative expression, food choices, and community groups pushing our city forward. Any tour of L.A. starts with our Hollywood studios (Warner Bros, Paramount) and continues on to our robust art scene (LACMA, The Broad, The Getty) before stopping for a bite to eat in one of our two Chinatowns, a local taqueria, or one of the iconic Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles locations. If you’re looking to contribute to the city on a local level, you can plug in to a variety of organizations tackling everything from building community-driven gardens in South L.A. to those engaged in crucial anti-gentrification work in Boyle Heights.
In order to apply and work in Los Angeles you will need:
- A bachelor's Degree (by the first day of summer training)
- A minimum GPA of 3.0
- Citizen, National/Legal Resident, or DACA Status
The Los Angeles region places corps members with DACA status in schools. In addition, we provide support from staff and have relationships with regional organizations who support DACA recipients with legal and social support.
LGBTQ Legal Protections
California is proud to be a state that prohibits employment discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. California also backs LGBTQ individuals on all laws and policies that affect the community.
