- Possible Budget Cuts for Americorps

- Civicorps - Academic and Professional Pathway
On November 24, the Associated Press published an article about the Recycling Truck Driver Union Apprenticeship program in partnership with Waste Management. Quote from the article: "It's really cool to watch these young adults enjoy what they are doing and get past anything that happened to them before," said Barry Skolnick, of Waste Management. "It's a great win-win for them and for us and for Civicorps, and a win-win for the city of Oakland."
