Corpsmembers, former corpsmembers, and California Conservation Corps staff were invited by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) to attend a meeting with U.S. Transporation Secretary Anthony Foxx last week in San Francisco.

The focus was project work the CCC provides to Caltrans and specifically the career path the two agencies have developed through the Caltrans Trainee program. A number of corpsmembers have been hired by Caltrans after participating in the Trainee program.  Also discussed was how the CCC makes use of both federal and state transportation funding.
