It is with great pride that we announce the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the California Mini-Corps Program. From its inception in 1967, the California Mini-Corps Program (CMC) has positively impacted the educational lives of hundreds of thousands of migrant children and has contributed to California’s bilingual teacher workforce. Today, CMC alumni hold positions as district superintendents, college presidents, school principals, central office administrators and university professors. Hundreds, if not thousands, teach in our public schools throughout the golden state. Over the last thirty years, the CMC received numerous recognitions, including three resolutions for outstanding performance by the members of the California legislature and most recently, a special recognition by the White House.
