21st Century Conservation Service Corps (21CSC) seeks member orgs

Posted by on July 29, 2013

The 21st Century Conservation Service Corps (21CSC) engages young Americans and veterans nationwide to protect, restore, and enhance America’s great outdoors.

A bold national effort that builds on the legacy of the Civilian Conservation Corps and other conservation corps, the 21CSC uses a unique approach of primarily working through non-federal partners to run conservation programs.

Now, the 21CSC National Council is requesting letters of interest from all conservation and youth corps programs that would like to be identified as a 21CSC member organization.

The 21CSC Federal Advisory Council recommended (and the Interagency National Council agreed) to eight program criteria for participation in the 21CSC. A Federal Register notice has been published to provide the opportunity to all organizations and programs who meet the eight criteria to submit letters of interest to become part of the 21CSC.

The 21CSC Federal Register Notice is now posted on the Federal Register site. Click here to view the notice. The deadline for the initial submission is August 1.


Next, the 21CSC Interagency Working Group and National Council will review the submissions received before August 1, 2013. They will respond to interested organizations by September 30, 2013.

Please share this notice with all partners and potentially interested parties across the country, including those that do not work directly with any federal partners.
