About Corps Network

Corps are comprehensive youth development programs that provide their participants with job training, academic programming, leadership skills, and additional support through a strategy of service that improves communities and the environment. They are a direct descendant of the Depression-era Civilian Conservation Corps, which mobilized about three million young men who dramatically improved the nation's public lands while receiving food, shelter, education, and a precious $30-a-month stipend.
