Help Support the Youth Corps Act of 2011!
The number one goal of Service and Conservation Corps and The Corps Network is to see a dedicated funding stream established at the federal level to support Corps. With legislation pending in the House (H.R. 711), we’re closer to seeing that happen than at any other time in the past 25 years!
Congresswoman Mazie Hirono has introduced The Youth Corps Act of 2011, a bill that would create a home for Corps within the Department of Labor. Specifically, this legislation will create a grant program within the Department of Labor to provide funding for youth Service and Conservation Corps to access in order to provide education and job training to at-risk youth across the nation.
