Get Involved

FFRP provides help to those formerly incarcerated in California's Conservation Camps, but accepts participants from all experiences and backgrounds.  We are here to help you explore your career pathways.

We offer outreach / awareness seminars, post secondary educational resources / linkages, wildfire training, forestry volunteer opportunities and career workshops.  All services are provided free of charge, though participants must submit an application prior to receiving support.

You must fill out both the Assessment Form and the Cohort Application if you're interested. Please find the link to both below*:

*Applications can 
only be submitted by interested participants - if you are interested in inquiring on behalf of an interested participant that's currently incarcerated please contact

Please note: All potential participants should understand that at the time of formal employment with an agency, you must be over 18 years of age and able to work in the U.S., with a high school diploma or GED.  All career position offers might be conditional upon completion of an acceptable check of the National Sex Offender Public Registry and federal criminal background check.
