About The Corps Network National Conference

The Corps Network National Conference is an annual gathering of national, state, and local leaders in the fields of workforce development, community service, and conservation. Attendees include hundreds of young adult Corpsmembers and staff from Corps across the country; officials from federal agencies; representatives from philanthropic foundations; and friends and supporters of the Corps movement.

About Our 2022 Conference Theme:

We Are the Civilian Climate Corps: A CCC For a New Generation: In 1933, as the United States faced a crisis of widescale environmental degradation, our nation’s leaders established the Civilian Conservation Corps to put young men to work restoring America’s natural resources. Today, as we face a pivotal moment in the fight against climate change, we once again call on the model of the CCC to engage young Americans in efforts to bolster community resilience and stem the negative impacts of our changing climate – the Civilian Climate Corps.

The original CCC completed important work, but a CCC for the next generation must reflect the new America, one focused on equity and community input.

The Corps Network’s 2022 National Conference is a virtual event where we will build this vision for the next generation’s CCC. Bringing together thought leaders, Corps staff, and Corps partners who make up the modern Corps movement, TCN will engage attendees in a series of workshops, discussions, and presentations related to Climate Corps best practices and issue areas. 

Thank you to our 2022 Conference Sponsors
