The Millennial Generation is hungry for work that makes a difference in their communities. Corps programs represent a way to engage these passionate future leaders in trail work and advocacy. This presentation will include analysis of the value of working with youth corps (financial, social, and educational) and techniques for partnering with corps programs in every part of the country. The presentation will include case studies of an established corps program (Northwest Youth Corps) and two emerging corps programs (Illinois Trail Corps and The Oxford County Conservation Corps in Maine).
