America’s Service and Conservation Corps build resilient communities and people. Every day, Corps help make habitats healthier, infrastructure stronger, cities more sustainable, homes more efficient, and landscapes more resistant to the effects of natural disasters. In the process of completing important projects across the country, Corps help thousands of young adults gain the certifications, confidence, and work-readiness skills to succeed in their personal and professional lives. With a history spanning over 80 years, the Corps community itself is resilient, adapting to meet the changing needs and priorities of our country. At “Resilience,” we will explore how, through partnerships and creative thinking, Corps can continue to embody and project the ability to withstand, recover, and grow.
