Press Release

For Immediate Release

MARCH 21, 2007 SAN JOSE CA – Undefeated MMA fighter and Pro wrestler, Daniel Puder, is determined to STOP gang violence in 2007. He has just joined the board of San Jose Conservation Corps & Charter School. A local Trade school to encourage troubled youth with 400 young adults who are apart of the program. Youth Corps inspires and develops young people through an after-school study and service work program that benefits the environment and community. Be sure to view the video of Puder at the Conservation Corps at Daniel will also be speaking at the Jubilee Christian Center this Sunday.


Through a partnership with Andrew Hill and Independence High Schools, the program identifies at-risk students and offers them the opportunity to serve their community, while earning graduation credits and an income to help themselves and their families. Under supervision of qualified Youth Corps Leaders, the program motivates students to stay in school, explore career options, and become positively involved in their community.


First and foremost are the Youth Corps Leaders, who come to us from across the United States to provide a year of service to at-risk youth in San Jose. In addition to planning daily activities, tutoring, and supervising the students in the Youth Corps program, Youth Corps Leaders assist the community in several ways. During the morning hours Youth Corps Leaders lend their talents to SJCC and other community agencies providing much needed services including tutoring of adult corps members, development assistance, volunteer management, and much more.

Overseeing each new group of Youth Corps Leaders is the three person staff. Two Program Coordinators oversee the program at each school, along with the Youth Corps Program Director. Together the staff members serve as liaisons to the school, offer training and support to the team of Youth Corps Leaders, and steer the program toward its long term goals.
