Jake will be presenting at the LA Conservation Corps Awards next Friday!
The LA Conservation Corps will award $200,000 in scholarships to 188 participants at its luncheon April 20 from 11:30AM to 2PM at Los Angeles State Historic Park
Always caring for young adults, our Jake. Not only for the Edible Schoolyard Project and the New Eyes for the Needy, but also for the LA Conservation Corps, whose
[Its] primary mission is to provide at-risk young adults and school-aged youth with opportunities for success through job skills training, education and work experience with an emphasis on conservation and service projects that benefit the community. The Corps is a national leader in workforce development and alternative education for inner-city youth and is currently the largest urban conservation corps in the nation with a full-time staff of over 150 employees serving 17,000 young people each year.
Jake’s care for the environment is not a secret either and I bet he’ll be thrilled about this
The Los Angeles Conservation Corps is proud to acknowledge that the next generation of environmentalists are among the youth who will be recognized with scholarships at the annual luncheon.
…and I bet you guys and I are thrilled about THIS
The true stars of this event are the scholars, a few of whom will share their story of triumph at this year’s luncheon. In addition, actor Jake Gyllenhaal is scheduled to attend for a third year to help present the scholarships.
So while we wait for pictures of the event, here’s Jake in the two past editions he presented.

I guess we’ll have a bearded Jake this year. Ha!
On a funny note, this asked to be posted here! I can very well imagine the shock when you get to talk with Jake over the phone for 26 minutes (lucky guy!!!)
Talked to Jake Gyllenhaal on the phone for 26 minutes and 13 seconds.
Oh, god. I’m still trying to function.
I wasn’t even suppose to speak with him.
At work today I was to call a rep for Jake and talk about stuff for work.
BUT NOOOOOOOO….Jake wanted to a humble and an awesome jackass and talk to me himself. Obviously, caught off guard I could barely speak properly (how professional).
I was saying “Uh…um.” over 20 times in the beginning.
So, I said “Sorry I just, uh…” He goes “No, it’s totally fine. I understand.”
Well, look at this bastard. He just HAD to be nice.
Overall, Jake is hilarious, kind, and an absolute sweetheart.
The “look at this bastard” had me laugh out loud. Anyway, Jake is truly the kindest celebrity on earth.
