Addressing Timely Topics
for Corps & Our Partners

The Corps Network hosts regular “town hall” discussions and presentations to address a range of timely topics. The Service and Conservation Corps community is the primary audience for these calls, but the content in many Town Halls is also timely and relevant for others.
