Human Environment Center, Washington, DC.
Urban conservation and service corps units, which provide jobs to disadvantaged youth and engage them in activities beneficial to the wider society, such as building or restoring city facilities, are discussed in this document, which contains two separate reports. Report 1 describes the origin and basic features of urban corps programs in New York City, California, Portland (Oregon), and Connecticut, and presents suggestions for getting a new program started. Report 2 focuses on corps funding. Possible State, local, and Federal sources of financing are outlined, and two appendices are provided giving brief profiles of a variety of conservation and service corps units and a list of useful resources.
