The San Jose Conservation Corps & Charter School (SJCC+CS) is an organization dedicated to getting the community’s disadvantaged youth on the right track.
For over 30 years, SJCC+CS has assisted the community’s underprivileged youth by providing educational and vocational resources. Whether it be obtaining a high school diploma, passing a state exam, or receiving diverse job training, SJCC+CS has helped mold more than 20,000 young men and women who wouldn’t have received such an opportunity otherwise.
Anna Chan, Global Marketing Manager at Verifone, has served on the SJCC+CS Board of Directors since 2016. For Chan, the opportunity to give back to the community by educating and enriching its disadvantaged youth has been a fulfilling and inspiring life experience.
Anna Chan, Global Marketing Manager at Verifone, and an SJCC+CS Board Member, speaks with SJCC+CS alumni at the 2018 Spring Luncheon Celebration.
“SJCC+CS imparts its students with high-quality education, vocational schooling, and the life skills that empower them to become productive and caring individuals, which can only strengthen our community,” said Chan. “These are young people who may not have been able to reach these goals previously due to systematic barriers.”
