This month (October 2017) we had the pleasure of conducting a webinar to introduce members of The Corps Network (TCN) to Roots of Success. TCN’s work is very much aligned with our mission, which is to prepare youth and adults who have been failed by the education system for environmental careers and to improve conditions in their communities.
The Corps Network supports over 130 Service and Conservation Corps that provide comprehensive youth development programs to almost 25,000 young people, ages 16-25 throughout the nation. Corps programs engage participants in service projects, job training, and academic programming that strengthen communities, improve the environment, and transform participant’s lives.
Corps members provide conservation, infrastructure improvement, and human service projects throughout the country. Their work is varied, focused on improving and preserving public lands and national parks; providing critical energy conservation services, including weatherization; restoring natural habitats; creating urban parks and gardens; providing disaster preparation and recovery to under-resourced communities; improving quality of life in low-income communities by renovating deteriorating housing and providing support to in-school and after-school education programs.
We are looking forward to partnering with The Corp Network to integrate Roots of Success into interested Corps programs. If you work with a Corps program and want to learn more about Roots of Success, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
