About our 2021 National Conference
A New Era: Corps in Today’s America
DATE: March 15 – 18, 2021
At our 36th Annual National Conference, we celebrated the “New Era” of Service and Conservation Corps. “Unprecedented” only begins to describe this past year. As our country experiences health, economic, and environmental challenges, and as we confront racial and social inequities, we are evolving as a nation. We have learned a lot over the preceding months, including the fact that our country has a great deal of work to do to heal, to bring people together, and to address environmental issues that threaten our safety. With everything we have witnessed, we are different. In this “New Era,” what role can Service and Conservation Corps play in building more resilient communities, a sustainable economy, a modern workforce, a more equitable society, and a brighter future? At The Corps Network 2021 National Conference, we invite you to envision with us what this “New Era” will look like for the 21st Century Service and Conservation Corps movement.
