The California Mini-Corps Program, through the auspices of Butte County Schools, was initiated in 1967, patterned after the Peace Corps program. A corps of college students with a rural migrant background was recruited to work as teacher assistant in migrant impacted summer schools. The Mini-Corps students were role models that hopefully would raise the aspirations of migrant students. A sense of commitment, dedication, responsibility and sensitivity was required of the Mini-Corps participants. The Mini-Corps students would be personally acquainted with their students and make home visitations to the homes of migrant parents. The program was only a summer program until 1974 when the school year programs were initiated slowly throughout the state.
