About California Greenworks
California Greenworks primarily serves the communities of south Los Angeles, most of which are disadvantaged communities designated by Senate Bill 535. These communities are predominantly minorities with a high unemployment rate, high housing burdens, and low educational attainment. In engaging youth of underserved communities, we are establishing pathways to brighter futures for more people, especially those traditionally left out.
We increase public awareness and participation in finding short and long-term solutions to these environmental, social, and economic problems and public health challenges. To effectively achieve our goal and ensure authentic community participation, we work in partnership with community-based, civic, and nonprofit organizations. Through collaborative efforts, we cultivate environmental stewardship and leadership amongst community members, thus building community capacity.
