Every year, at The Corps Network’s National Conference in Washington, DC, we honor a select group of exceptional Corpsmembers from our member Service and Conservation Corps. These young adults have exceeded the expectations of their Corps by exhibiting outstanding leadership skills and demonstrating an earnest commitment to service and civic engagement. The Corpsmembers of the Year are role models; their personal stories and accomplishments are an inspiration to Corpsmembers nationwide.
As a member organization, we proudly represent over 130 organizations that operate in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Approximately 25,000 young adults join these organizations each year so that they can make a difference. They serve on a broad range of projects, viewing themselves as the modern legacy-bearers of the legendary Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). Unquestionably, all 25,000 of these young adults who serve have fascinating stories to tell. The Corpsmember of the Year Award is our way of recognizing how Corps, and the actions of these young individuals, make a positive impact in our communities and in the lives of others.
For all Corpsmembers of the Year, The Corps Network covers conference registration, lodging at the Conference hotel from Friday, February 7, 2020 to Wednesday, February 12, 2020, and up to $1000 for travel including airfare, baggage fees, ground transportation, and food and beverage.
