Congratulations to the graduates of Ventura Training Center’s first class (01-19)! We are so proud of all your work and accomplishments! Thanks to our partners CALFIRE, California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR), and California Conservation Corps (CCC) for leading this innovative venture to train and develop participants for careers in firefighting, emergency response, and resource conservation.

Thank you to all our ARC staff and support at VTC. We see here the power of giving people opportunities and we know how much they can give in service of their communities. As graduate Joseph Whalin said on behalf of his class, “let the bridges we’ve burned light the path we follow.” Not tethered to the past, all eyes on the future!
